Sociology Student Spotlight

Based on faculty and instructor nominations to the Undergraduate Studies Committee, each month we choose one major to feature as our “Sociology Student Spotlight.” This program recognizes the extraordinary achievements, accomplishments, and activities of our undergraduate majors.

Current Spotlight Student: Taylor Brown!

After initially intending to study Occupational Therapy, Taylor switched to major in Sociology and Health and Human Services because she is “passionate about helping people in the way a Social Worker helps change people’s realities, by providing resources to help change or cope with a difficult situation.” Taylor says she has enjoyed all of her sociology courses at UB. She explains, “Each of my classes taught me something unique and exposed me to a new facet of sociology.”

Taylor plans to work towards her Master of Social Work after graduating this spring. She explains her interest in social work this way: “I am interested in issues of poverty and early intervention as a means to break the cycle of poverty and economically uplift families.”

Congratulations Taylor!
