About the Program
Courses in Sociology are designed to prepare students for further study in Sociology leading to the BA, MA, MSW, and/or PhD degrees.
Sociologists with graduate degrees may teach at the high school, college, or graduate levels. They may also become Research Sociologists in both the public and private sectors and work in areas of public policy, the law, and international studies. Applied Sociologists may work with social service agencies and community programs on behalf of others—often underrepresented or neglected groups.
This program fulfills typical lower-division requirements at four-year transfer institutions. Some variation in requirements may exist at a particular four-year college or university; therefore, it is essential that the student also refer to the catalog of the prospective transfer institution and consult a counselor.
