Sociology, A.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree Programs

Sociology is the study of society, culture, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Sociologists examine institutions including the family, economy, education, religion, politics, health, and the media. They explore divisions by gender, race, and class, and social problems such as crime and poverty. A degree in sociology prepares students to continue their education at a four-year college or university and pursue a wide range of careers in research, education, program development, and social services.
