Sociology Degree - Bachelor of Arts
Sociology helps people gain a better understanding of themselves and their world by studying society from a scientific perspective. Expertise in sociology is applicable to variety of career fields in business, education, non-profit, and health-related jobs. In addition, it is a foundation for graduate studies in sociology, social work, counseling, criminal justice, law, medicine, business and education.
