The sociology program at University of South Carolina Beaufort provides to its students the theoretical, conceptual, and methodological analytical tools to describe and explain human social life and the multifaceted connections between society and the individual. Mastery of the principles of social stratification (esp. age, gender, race and ethnicity), social organization, socialization, deviance and social control, institutions, and social change allow graduates in sociology to analyze and understand phenomena associated with rapid urbanization, such as population growth, crime, and divorce rates. The program seeks to provide students with a well-rounded academic experience that also prepares students for graduate study and/or careers in such areas as public health/epidemiology, marketing research, criminology and criminal justice, and social services.
