Make the difference. Build communities.
Address the major social challenges of our time:
Sociology prepares students to adapt to new situations, work with others, and become engaged community members. Our applied sociology program at Marymount focuses on addressing inequality and achieving justice in a world of diversity and difference. Unlike other sociology programs, all of our required courses contribute to this departmental focus.
The world is our classroom...
As a community of students and faculty, we share the common interest in understanding global connections and the benefits of using our knowledge about cultural diversity to address these and other issues. Your coursework will focus on the contemporary social challenges in immigration, human rights, cultural diversity, gender and racial inequalities, and community development.
