About Sustainable Community Development

If you are interested in bridging cultural gaps and addressing issues of inequality, you should consider our Sustainable Community Development minor, which encourages students to participate in service learning and applied fieldwork.  You can take courses such as Education for Social Change, Food and Society, and Equality and Social Justice, making this a minor that perfectly complements majors such as Healthcare Administration, Education, Environmental Science, and Political Science.

“One thing I have appreciated about the Sociology department is how personable the professors are, and how much they want you to succeed!”

 - Madison Mudd '20

“I love how helpful the professors are in working with your schedule, especially as an athlete. They also push you in your study to unlock a greater understanding for what you are learning.”

 - Kody Kasey, '17

"The Sociology department provides much more than a learning experience, it provides an opportunity to grow as an individual, find your passions, gain new understanding, and create  change. This department truly encourages you to use your voice and share its power."

 - Kyndle Pace, '18
