The Sociology curriculum at Bates explores social structures and how they intersect with individual lives. Courses introduce students to the sociological perspective and examine a wide range of social phenomena, from patterns of everyday interaction to social and political revolutions. Sociology as a discipline focuses on recognizing and analyzing the social influences that shape our lives. This offers potential not only for understanding society but also for social action and social change.
