Out of the classroom and into the real world

The UNK Sociology department puts a great deal of effort and resources in getting its students out of a traditional lecture-style environment and into a hands-on learning environment. As a Sociology student, you'll find many opportunities to get involved in field and lab work, internships, and studying abroad.


Through its internship program, Sociology offers its students the opportunity to work with real clients in real situations throughout Nebraska.

Study abroad  

Studying abroad is one of the most effective methods for learning the about the cultural diversity that is so important to Sociology. Observing groups within other cultures lets Sociology students gain perspectives that could never be realized through the classroom alone.
