“I knew I wanted to major in sociology when I started college. The professors at USCB were really kind and made my time an unforgettable experience. My favorite class was Sociology of Crime, which focused on real instances of crime in society. I also enjoyed Research Seminar. We interviewed older adults to understand the challenges they face. Sociology at USCB taught me why social disparities and differences in social interaction exist.”
