Sociology Majors Study Abroad


Why study Sociology abroad?

"The forces of globalization are fundamentally changing society in the twenty-first century. Southern California is on the "leading edge" as global economic forces, world culture and increasingly complex mosaic of migrants and ethnic groups come together in Orange County and the greater metropolitan region. Study abroad helps sociology students to view these changes with new eyes, see how we fit into a increasingly interconnected world, and helps them make sense of changes in our own society. EAP will broaden your perspective and also make you more attractive to graduate programs and employers in a globalized world!"

- David A. Smith
Professor of Sociology
