Return to College of Liberal Arts Return to: College of Liberal Arts

The Bachelor of Arts degree program in sociology focuses on the systematic study of human social institutions and social relationships. It includes instruction in social theory, sociological research methods, social organization, social stratification, dynamics of social change, family structures, social deviance and control, and applications to the study of specific social groups, social institutions, and social problems.

With a bachelor’s degree in sociology, students are prepared for employment in a wide range of entry level positions in social services, community work, corrections, management, college settings, health services, public relations, government services, and teaching (in conjunction with appropriate teacher certification). For students who plan to further their education, a major in sociology prepares them for graduate studies in a wide array of programs, including but not limited to sociology, counseling, criminology, education, law, public health, rehabilitation, social research, and social work.

In addition to promoting the development of critical thinking skills, practical knowledge and competency, and an appreciation of human differences and commonalities, the sociology curriculum is designed to develop in students an integrated sense of identity and civic responsibility.
