The Sociology major is an exciting discipline with expanding opportunities for a wide range of career paths.  Sociology is a valuable liberal arts major for students planning careers in a wide variety of fields including social research, criminology, demography, social psychology, public administration, gerontology, education, social work and market research.  It provides a useful background for those planning to enter law, business, medicine, community planning, and politics.

Students may choose either a 45-credit major or a 60-credit major. In order to graduate, a student who completes the 45-credit major must also have a minor or second major in another discipline.
