Program Overview

Fayetteville State University offers an online Bachelor degree completion program in the study of Sociology. Sociology is the delicate study of human society, which encompasses origins, development social groupings, and traditional and non-traditional organizations. The expansive social science is a foundational body of knowledge needed when analyzing the intricacies of human behavior. The field of sociology can include social class, religion, welfare, government, politics, music, art, literature and anthropology to name a few.  

This sociology program will provide students the modern and applicable education through research and methodologies when analyzing past, present and future trends and events in a society. The goal of the traditional role of a sociologist is to determine conclusive evidence, through scientific research, that will be applied to social programs, economic plans and a general understanding of human interaction. The rise in modern awareness and commonality of education among a population has increased the interests in teaching and learning sociology as an academic study.  

Students will be introduced to courses such as logic, ethics, law, history as well as core courses in human behavior, social inequality, criminal justice, gender roles, suburban life, deviant behavior, sexual preference, research methods and family structures. The sociology discipline is varied in course material but structured in what is expected to be learned and applied to observations. The sociology graduate will be in essence a social worker, working to provide answers to questions about social interactions, communities and psychological interests.  

Graduates will use the learned foundations of a degree in sociology to enter careers as policy makers, lawyers, educators, business managers, government organizations and social workers. Successful students can pursue additional education in sociology or other concentrations to expand the core knowledge and become specialized in specific areas.
