Sociology Department


Welcome to the Sociology Department at McLennan Community College!
We invite you to come join the experience of discovery in the field of Sociology.

Sociology is:

  • The study of “socius” or companions — being with others
  • A social science involving the study of the social lives of people, groups, and societies
  • The study of our behavior as social beings, covering everything from the analysis of short contacts between anonymous individuals on the street to the study of global social processes
  • The scientific study of social aggregations, the entities through which humans move throughout their lives
  • An overarching unification of all studies of humankind, including history, psychology, and economics
