Sociology at Providence College

Why Study Sociology at Providence College?
The sociology department at Providence College offers students the chance to examine the world through a sociological lens. Through active, engaged learning and student participation, students are challenged to approach their world critically and to achieve a nuanced understanding of how stratification, marginalization, and institutionalization impact society at large and individual opportunities, experiences, and realities.

Students are introduced to sociological perspectives that are global, national, and local and to social realities that reflect the complexities of race, class, gender, and culture.
