To study sociology is to study society. As a social science – the science of studying humans – sociology focuses on the study of people and groups. This focus can be as narrow as looking at short interactions between people in passing or as complex as analyzing global social processes. Perhaps the most comprehensive of the social sciences, sociology is concerned with the analysis and explanation of the most challenging issues of our time: street crime and delinquency, corporate downsizing and dislocation, child abuse and broken families, welfare and education reform, racism and ethnic cleansing, and problems of peace and war.

The study of sociology and anthropology at Albright combines service learning and field experience with traditional classroom instruction to provide a well-balanced academic program that prepares you for the situations and environments you will encounter after graduating.
