Sociology Learning Opportunities

As a sociology major at MSU Moorhead, you’ll gain valuable real-world experience beyond the classroom when you join student organizations, land meaningful internships, and more. By participating in these opportunities, you’ll be able to gain professional experience and significantly expand your knowledge while having fun.

Alpha Kappa Delta, the National Sociology Honor Society, seeks to acknowledge and promote excellence in the study of sociology, the research of social problems and other social and intellectual activities to help improve the human condition. Membership is open to undergraduate sociology majors of junior standing or above, who rank in the top 35 percent for their class or have at least a 3.5 overall GPA.

If you want to live in an educational environment surrounded by others with the same passion for human services the Human Services learning community is for you. Learning communities provide outstanding opportunity to increase academic success and make connections with those in your major like criminal justice, psychology, social work or sociology.

Sociology Club gives students interested in sociology an opportunity to gather and discuss important topics, movies and books related to sociology. As part of the club, you’ll be able to attend regional sociology meetings of the Midwest Sociological Society. For more information, contact faculty advisor Dr. Lee Vigilant at

While internships aren’t required as part of the sociology program, they’re a great way to gain hands-on experience in the field prior to graduation. Up to 12 internship credits are available in sociology, however these credits cannot be applied to the major requirements.
