Sociology, B.A.

Program Description

The Sociology Program's mission is to provide majors with an understanding of the scientific study of human groups in modern societies and the social and cultural forces that affect them. The sociological perspective is central to grasping the social and cultural forces that remake our lives on a daily basis.

Why Take This Major?

Located in Philadelphia, La Salle's major in Sociology offers students numerous internships and experiential learning opportunities.  The small classes and attentive faculty create a tight-knit and supportive community atmosphere where students will study the social forces that create hierarchies of inequality as they impact groups based on race/ethnicity social class, religion, sexual orientation, and gender.  Lastly, we are committed to developing the skill sets that lead to careers and graduate training inspired by social justice.
