College of Sciences
Department of Sociology
Howard Phillips Hall (HPH) 403


Lecturer, Social Science Program Director and Sociology Undergraduate Director: Dr. Michael Armato

This minor provides students with an opportunity to learn about sociological research within the areas of religion, sports, leisure, music, pop culture, and focuses to some extent on how people consume goods and resources in society. This leads to a working knowledge of how public opinion and contemporary social movements shape collective behavior and mass culture. The minor is especially appropriate for students majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies, the social sciences, business, or for any student seeking an enhanced understanding of socio-cultural change within modern society. Given this broad-based set of courses, someone interested in a career in sales, marketing, volunteer organizations, or social media, for example, would find this minor a good fit.
