See all topics

Students who wonder why people behave differently in social settings, or why social hierarchies or social power affect a group's success would benefit from a mentorship in sociology. A mentorship in sociology explore how individual people or social or ethnic groups are influenced by larger social forces, institutions, and structures. Students learn how their life experience is shared by others, molded by patterns in behavior, process, and opportunity.

Sociology mentorships prepare students for a future career addressing social inequity, and can apply a sociological view to systems and processes as they build their skills in critical thinking, analysis, communication, quantitative reasoning, research, and social skills. With these transferable skills, students go on to study engineering, education, medicine, public policy, psychology, and law, amongst others.
