Dream. Flourish. Succeed.
Laney College



Sociology is the systematic study of human societies. It focuses on social organization, human interaction, intitutions and culture. Sociology is built on the premise that understanding how societies function is a necessary prerequisite for creating social change.

At Laney College, students learn how to use a Sociological Perspective to analyze many topics including group relations, inequality, contemporary social issues, as well as considering posibilities for creating deeper social justice.
