Program Overview

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology is intended for students who wish to study social life, social change, and the social cause and consequence of human behavior. Sociologists investigate the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact within these contexts. Students are required to have a strong grounding in sociology as well as the applied field of social services.

The coursework introduces students to critical issues in the field and offers students the opportunity to work within agencies in the community. Areas of study include: deviance, law and social control; inequality and social change; and social structure and institutions. Because this is a 45-credit major; student must complete either a traditional departmental minor or a second major.

The major requirements are such that students are encouraged to organize their program of study to include a minor in an area of interest or specialization outside of sociology. Some areas that fit well with this major include psychology ethnic studies, family studies, gerontology women's studies, law and justice and community health.
