Program Description

Sociologists study society and social behavior by examining the groups and social institutions people form, as well as various social, religious, political, and business organizations. Sociologists are concerned with the characteristics of social groups, organizations, and institutions; the ways individuals are affected by each other and by the groups to which they belong; and the effect of social traits such as sex, age, or race on a person’s daily life. The results of sociological research aid educators, lawmakers, administrators, and others interested in resolving social problems and formulating public policy.

The Associate in Arts degree in Sociology is intended to provide you with the first two years of general requirements and a basis in sociology that will prepare you for transfer to a four-year college or university. Learn more:
