“Go outside the classroom. Put your sociological imagination in action”

The department of sociology at Bridgewater College “puts the world at your doorstep.” Go outside the classroom. Put your sociological imagination in action.

Learn to critically investigate and observe the complexities of social life. You could go into the local area to study skateboarding culture or the experience of immigrants in the Shenandoah Valley. Or you might find yourself working with a local homeless shelter or riding along with a Harrisonburg police officer.

Pursuing a degree in sociology will connect you with students and faculty who are passionate about studying social life and seeking social change, while teaching you research skills that will ground your understanding of the world around you.

Sociology requires us to ask questions from many different perspectives. Are you intellectually curious? Interested in research and analysis? Do you want to make the world a better place? Give sociology a closer look.
