Welcome to the Department of Sociology at Rhode Island College. We invite students to explore the three programs administered by us. The Sociology Department houses the Sociology major/minor, the multidisciplinary Justice Studies Program (that leads to a major or minor), and the multidisciplinary Gerontology Program (that leads to a minor or certificate). Because of considerable overlap in course requirements across the Sociology, Justice Studies, and Gerontology curricula, many students are able to pursue a double major or combine a major in one program with a minor in another.
