An education in sociology develops:

  • critical and analytical thinking;
  • the ability to conceptualize complex processes;
  • the capacity to conduct independent research;
  • statistical analysis and interpretation skills;
  • proficiency in oral and written communication.

"All of the inferential statistics lessons really paid off… I don't know how many other [graduate school] applicants can say they have done such extensive research and completed every facet of a research project."
