Major in Sociology/Global Public Health

The Global Public Health/Sociology major prepares students to study social structures and interactions through the lens of public health issues and principles. The major draws on the Department of Sociology’s strength in theoretical creativity and substantive empirical research on important social issues. Students will study a variety of topics such as race and epidemiology, health policy, ethnicity, gender, immigration, wealth and poverty, family dynamics, and social policy. Students will also work closely with an adviser to select the right mix of electives to compliment individual interests and career paths. Global Public Health/Sociology graduates may go on to a diverse array of careers in law, health, public administration, and social service, as well as further graduate study in sociology, public health, or other related disciplines.
