Sociology

About the Program

Individuals live within webs of social relationships, including statuses, groups, and institutions, and sociology helps students to see and understand these influences in their lives. CCD's sociology program offers courses on race, gender, deviance, violence, religion, technology, aging, urbanization, and other subjects that will enable students to navigate the complex social bonds that unite us-and divide us-and to successfully function in careers that involve interacting with and providing service to members of a diverse but interconnected society.

We also offer some of our most popular classes focusing on women's studies with the program chair, Danielle Langworthy. These courses investigate women’s issues and roles in society and culture both historically and in contemporary culture.
