- ABOUT US
Cooperation and conflict are present in every human relationship, from the bond between married couples to the interactions of larger social units such as socioeconomic classes and ethnic groups. Sociologists study the patterns of behavior that characterize human interaction. They seek to discover the main forces that unite and separate social groups and to determine the conditions that transform social life. As a sociology major at UC Davis, you can tailor your major to suit your long-term personal goals, whether they include law school, a career in social services or in-depth work with business organizations.
Sociology graduates from UC Davis have found employment in such areas as social work, counseling, education and international trade. Many go on to graduate study in law, human service fields and business management.
As a Sociology major, you can choose an emphasis in law or society, social services, comparative studies and world development, or general sociology. A sociology degree provides a broad background in sociological theory and methods before moving to a more specific focus. Depending on your area of interest, you may study such topics as intercultural relations, the relationship between media and society, or issues of organizational decision-making.
