Sociology Welcome

Welcome to the wonderful world of sociology at EAC. Sociology
is the study of human social life and social interaction.
Sociology as a field of study has a fascinating
past and an exciting future; for instance,
much of the civil rights work in America
was moved forward by sociologists!
Students who take sociology classes
often find the understanding of society
they gain helps prepare them with the
"people skills" part of any career field.
Come learn more about the field of Sociology.

Sociology Student Experience

We Think You'll Fit into Our Program

“I love learning about different aspects of life and everyone's different opinions and views. I am preparing to be a social worker. These classes help me gain so much knowledge.”

“101 was a very good foundation, whetting my appetite to pursue a deeper understanding of sociological worldviews and how they are used in society.”

“My instructor is very professional and capable. His analogies and illustrations are humorous and intelligent. I like his teaching style, ability to communicate with students, and his up-beat nature.”

“I know I'ma a nuisance. I called and emailed a lot for extra help. Even though I was so annoying, he was always helpful and returned my emails right away.”
