The Department of Sociology offers a Bachelor of Arts degree which introduces students to key processes and methods, in addition to preparing students for graduate work in sociology and related fields. Students majoring in sociology explore the ways in which individual experiences and specific events are linked to larger social processes and social structures. Students can complete a General Program in Sociology or specialize in one of five concentrations: Family, Race and Urban Studies, Gender and Sexuality, Gerontology, and Social Studies Education. Within the specializations, however, there is a fair amount of flexibility for students to pursue topics of interest.
The Sociology degree program prepares students for careers in a number of fields including, but not limited to, the following: business and industry; community and social services; justice system; education; government; and, research.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses for students to follow, including milestones that should be met each year.
