Sociology examines how social factors affect both behavior and the potential consequences of that behavior. It seeks to uncover the existence of social patterns, explain how social patterns come to be and explore the consequences of such patterns for different individuals, groups and society at large. Sociology coursework at Collin College is designed to provide you with essential life skills and a deeper understanding of yourself and others. Critical thinking skills and a global perspective – attributes that will benefit you regardless of your major – are strongly emphasized.
