    Description

    Some of the most exciting aspects of sociology are its scope and interdisciplinary emphasis. In looking at humanity, sociologists use psychology, economics, anthropology, and history, and can employ both scientific and cultural methods.

    At Morris, the Sociology Discipline is distinctive for its range, diversity and rigorous scientific approach. Some of the principle benefits students enjoy are:

    • A personal focus. The faculty emphasizes one-on-one work in classes and on projects and research, so they get to know students well.
    • A powerful foundation in theory and methodology that provides the basis for success in research and graduate work, as well as careers.
    • A curriculum that covers the wide variety of topics in sociology, including gender, multiculturalism, environmental issues, sexuality, aging, race, ethnicity, systems of oppression, stratification, social changes, social justice, class, law, human rights, and more.
    • A high level of diversity in the Discipline and its outlook. Open-minded, respectful dialogue and analysis from multiple points of view are fully encouraged.

    Sociology is an extremely useful and versatile major, as knowledge of human interactions and scientific expertise are a forceful combination. With many recent innovations in business, management, and industry investigating how personality and behavior impact effectiveness and efficiency, sociologists have an immediate advantage applicable to many fields, from human services to law and beyond.

    Course Content

    The sociology curriculum (with support from anthropology courses) is designed to acquaint students with the concerns, theories, and methods of the science that deals with groups, culture, and interpersonal relations of human beings. In addition to an introduction to sociology as a science, an effort is made to relate human values to the theories, methods, and data of sociology. Courses are designed to meet the needs of liberal arts students, as well as students preparing for graduate school.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
