Department of Sociology

Are you intrigued by the social interactions around you? Fascinated by the way various groups of humans interact and relate? Perhaps the Department of Sociology at Indiana University Kokomo is the place for you! Sociology is the scientific study of social behavior and human social groups, from individual families to nations. It has a lot to offer, especially in an increasingly diverse and globally connected world. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ronald Reagan, and Michelle Obama all studied sociology!

Learning sociology means learning about your world – from your friends, family, and coworkers, to the globe at large.

As a student majoring in sociology you have an opportunity to obtain the excellent communication, interpersonal relations, and critical thinking skills employers look for and that make for good global citizens. You will learn to analyze both at the small- and big-picture level, to understand how perspectives influence how we view life. We offer a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and a minor in sociology. To get involved with your fellow sociology peers, you can join our Facebook group and become a part of IU Kokomo’s Sociology Club!
