Foreign Language Requirements/University Core Curriculum

All Departmental Majors must take 2 consecutive semesters of a foreign language, which will fulfill the language requirement of the University Core Curriculum.

Sociology Major

The Sociology major is designed to provide a broad intellectual and sociological background. The program provides students with both theoretical and methodological tools as well as substantive insights to assist them in understanding social life, social organization, and social action. Because of the concentration's focus on developing analytic skills, Sociology at Lincoln is an excellent preparation for many fields that involve social policy analysis, including law, business management, education, government and social service.
