Tennessee State University offers the Bachelor of Science in Sociology, a program that combines scientific and humanistic perspectives to identify, describe, explain and understand the connections between the social forces that help shape who we are, what we believe, how we behave, and how we choose to live our lives. Sociology examines how we shape our world through our interactions with others and by the choices we make, and how and why groups form, organize, achieve goals and evolve. Students who successfully complete this degree acquire a broad understanding of social processes, social institutions, and group behavior, and strong analytical skills that are highly prized in the worlds of business, industry, and local, state, and federal government and community organizations.
This is a bachelor completion program. A total of 120 credits are required, including transfer credits. Students must complete 60 General Education requirements through Tennessee State University or determine eligibility of transfer credits with TSU prior to enrollment.
