You can study sociology at Wright State and learn how people relate to each other as individuals, in families, or in groups; how they communicate in business and governmental situations; and how their behavior is judged as socially acceptable, deviant, illegal, or immoral. You will observe and measure these interactions to develop programs that can help change behavior for the good of individuals and society. After graduating, you can pursue a career dealing directly with people while employed by large businesses and organizations. You may also consider a career in teaching, researching, or working in community service or public relations. Choose an Associate of Arts at the Lake Campus only or Bachelor of Arts program or add a sociology minor to your existing major.
