Sociology is the analytical study of human groups and societies—how they develop, how they are structured, and how they function. Like human society itself, the field of sociology is extremely broad. Sociologists study the social world, from small groups of friends and families to formal organizations, such as universities and corporations, to entire nations. In addition, scholars of sociology look at social relationships and interactions, at power and conflict, at the structures that hold societies together, and at how those societies change. Students are encouraged to complete their 60 credits for the master’s degree in the first six terms of enrollment. Students are awarded a master’s degree if they have completed their required courses, achieved a mid-B or better average in their graded courses, and passed the master’s paper requirement.
