Academics and Admissions

Humans are intensely social creatures, with complex patterns of organized group behavior. Studying the discipline of sociology will provide you with the tools necessary to understand social structures and behaviors, and apply that knowledge in a practical way in your career.

Our programs are designed to give you a solid foundation in sociology, with built-in freedom and flexibility that allow you to explore the areas that interest you most.

We offer several options of study. Our bachelor’s degree prepares you for the working world or for graduate study. Our teaching degree prepares you for licensure to teach social studies in middle/high school. You may also explore a minor in sociology as a good complement to a variety of majors.

We also offer a master’s degree with advanced training in research and analytical skills that will prepare you for professional work or future doctoral work in sociology.
