Santa Clara University

Sociology department
“Santa Clara University’s Sociology program has taught me countless things about society, others, and most importantly, myself. Prior to coming to SCU, I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted to do in life, but I am proud to say I do now thanks to SCU and all of my wonderful peers and faculty. Go Broncos!”
Sociology Graduate, Class of 2015
