UCF Sociology

Minors

 

The Department of Sociology offers five different minors, available to non-Sociology majors. Like the B.A. degree, our minors increase students’ social awareness and their ability to employ a sociological perspective to interpret social institutions and behavior.

Sociology Minor

The Sociology Minor increases students’ social awareness and their ability to employ a sociological perspective to interpret social institutions and behavior.

Crime, Law, and Deviance Minor

The Crime, Law, and Deviance minor examines matters of sociological interest related to the study and understanding of deviant, delinquent, and criminal behavior, the relationship between law and society, and victimology.

Diversity and Social Inequality Minor

The Diversity and Social Inequality Minor examines the sociological study of class, status, and power in contemporary global society.

Mass Culture and Collective Behavior Minor

The Mass Culture and Collective Behavior Minor provides students with an opportunity to learn about sociological research within the institutions of religion, sports, and leisure in order to develop a working knowledge of how public opinion and contemporary social movements shape collective behavior and mass culture.

Medical Sociology Minor

The Medical Sociology minor examines the social determinants of health and illness, and their impact on the delivery of health care and access to medical resources.
