Sociology


Courses in sociology prepare students to understand the sociological perspective, sociological imagination, sociological research, and many other topics that deal with the influence of culture and socialization on both individual and group behavior. These courses also enable students to apply the three sociological paradigms to critically examine numerous social problems at the micro and macro levels.

The sociology program of study prepares students to transfer to sociology departments and programs at four-year colleges and universities. Students graduating with a bachelor’s degree in sociology  will develop their ability to critically analyze issues having to do with human social behavior, develop an understanding of the logic and techniques of examining human social behavior, develop practical  skills and knowledge about work, and develop an understanding of sociological concepts, theories, ideas, and explanations.
