The sociology degree at King's develops research, critical thinking, decision making, and communication skills through study of the social aspects of life.

Ever wonder why people listen to certain types of music, dress the way they do, commit crimes, struggle with homelessness or addictions, or live in certain ways? Sociology engages these and other related questions by looking deep into our social character and the systemic organization of human interaction.
