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.
(NOTE: Students seeking a BA degree must complete one year college/university study or two years high school study of a single world language.)
(NOTE: Students admitted to the sociology major cannot also have a sociology minor; however, they may have a social services minor. Likewise, students admitted to the social services major cannot also have a social services minor, but they may have a sociology minor.)
