Sociology

College of Liberal Arts

Sociology is the scientific study of human behavior. It studies the larger forces outside the individual that affect peoples personal experience and lives. It also studies those larger forces themselves, such as families, organizations, social classes, ethnic groups, nations and the world system.

There is virtually no aspect of social life that is not studied by sociologists. That said, there are some common specialties. These include: Crime, Law, and Deviance; Culture; Demography; Organizational, Political and Economic; Race, Class, and Gender; and Social Psychology.

The Texas A&M Sociology Department offers extraordinary opportunities in undergraduate education. The department has been recognized by the American Sociological Association as a national leader in quality undergraduate sociological training.
