Course DescriptionSociology is concerned with social relations: how people relate to each other as individuals, in families, or in groups; how they communicate in business and governmental situations; and how their behavior is judged as socially acceptable, deviant, illegal, or immoral. The Bachelor of Arts program in sociology trains students to observe and measure these interactions, predict likely outcomes from certain situations, and determine how we can develop programs to change behavior for the good of individuals and society.
Sociology graduates typically find careers that involve dealing with people, often working for large businesses or organizations, or in community service, public relations, teaching, or research. Sociology majors are required to take five or more upper-level courses designed to develop their writing skills and thinking capacity.
