Sociology of Culture

This concentration focuses on popular culture, the media, technology, and the arts, as well as cultural diversity in post-industrial society.  Students in this concentration will take a critical look at how the culture of everyday life is linked to the economy, state, family, education, and politics.  Students interested in pursuing careers in communications, advertising, cultural criticism, market research and journalism should consider this concentration.  We strongly suggest that students in this concentration take SOC 280 MASS MEDIA AND CULTURE.​ In addition to the core sociology course requirements, students will complete eight additional courses from the concentration list below:
