Minor in Sociology

Sociology at its core is the study of human behavior in larger group settings, with a focus on issues such as conformity, leadership, prejudice, decision-making, and attitude influence.

Webster courses in sociology will help you develop a multicultural understanding of the human experience and the analytical skills necessary for critically evaluating the diversity of human belief systems, past and present. You will use approaches that range from the scientific to the philosophical, from the experimental to the theoretical. Through these methods you will develop and apply problem-solving skills that will help you think analytically and to communicate clearly and persuasively throughout your life and career.

The following apply to all minors:

  • A minor must be comprised of 18 credit hours taken at Webster University.
  • No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor.
  • Students may have a major and a minor within the same department; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course they wish to apply toward a minor.
