Students of sociology thrive on the study of society and the improvement of the human condition. At MBC, the major focuses on understanding and finding answers, providing students with a firm foundation in the social sciences. Sociology professors maintain an open door policy and often work side by side with students in community outreach. Students also receive the opportunity to develop professionally through organized internships.
