Our Mission: The sociology program at Le Moyne College provides students with rigorous training in the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Critical training is provided in scientific and humanistic methods of analysis. Graduates are able to apply diverse analytical perspectives to a global world and are prepared to provide leadership toward a more ethical and just society.
A major or minor in sociology is one of the most direct ways to delve into serious study of the world around us. At Le Moyne a sociology degree allows students to study with scholars who have earned their degrees from some of the nation’s leading schools of Economics, Public Affairs, Anthropology, Criminology and Sociology of Religion. In the long-term the department’s rigorous program of study prepares its graduates for successful careers in a variety of fields including the human services, education, academia, law and criminology and criminal justice.
