Sociology seeks to uncover the existence of social patterns, explain how social patterns come to be and explore patterns for different individuals, groups and society at large.

Sociology courses at Collin College enable students to comprehend widespread social changes and relate these back to their every day experiences. Courses are designed to provide students with essential life skills and a deeper understanding of themselves, others and the various social worlds they inhabit. Critical thinking skills and a global perspective - attributes that will benefit students regardless of their major - are strongly emphasized in Sociology courses.
