Student Profile

Name: Dia Yang
Major: Sociology

Why Sociology?

“The way our society functions and the interaction of those around me has always held me spellbound. I chose sociology because I want to understand why people relate to each other as they do. I also like exploring the general study of families, religions, and political parties.”

A Wide Variety of Classes

“My favorite classes have been criminology and urban studies. The sociology major gives me a wide variety of classes to take, which makes it that much more enjoyable."

Be Ready for a Challenge

“I would tell incoming students that they should take a few sociology classes if they are the least bit interested in the major. They are challenging yet eye opening, and you will know through the classes if the major is for you.”
