BACHELOR OF ARTS
MAJOR IN SOCIOLOGY

 
Sociology is the study of social life and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. A major in Sociology complements many career paths by developing students' understanding of the nature of society and social relationships as these affect them in their personal and professional lives. The general objectives of this major are to provide students with: 1) An understanding of the causes and consequences of social inequality, including those or race, gender, sexuality, and social class, 2) An understanding of the forces of social change and social stability, and 3) An array of job skills applicable to a wide variety of labor force positions.

Following is one suggested four-year degree plan. Students are encouraged to see their advisor each semester for help with program decisions and enrollment.  Students are responsible for reviewing the Program of Study Requirements.
