Understanding Human Behavior as a Leader and Manager

The Department of Sociology and Organizational Leadership is an interdisciplinary department with two majors that prepare students for a variety of professional careers in management, administration, non-profit, community or government agencies, social service, law and law enforcement, social science research, teaching, or graduate studies. Students may major in either Sociology or Organizational Leadership. To better prepare students for these careers, all our courses are structured to encourage development of skills like:

  • critical thinking,
  • problem-solving,
  • communication, and
  • working with diverse others.

A degree in Organizational Leadership requires admittance to the PACE non-traditional education program.
