Sociology Degrees

Assessment information for this degree is available from our Assessment landing page.


Besides the fact that sociology helps you become more informed about the social world and helps you positively impact your everyday life, it is also academically and professionally beneficial because it demonstrates to potential employers and university admissions officers that you have spent time and effort to acquire some depth in a discipline, in addition to meeting the normal degree requirements for the B.A. or B.S. We offer three concentrations in Sociology that allow you to focus on a specific topic or approach to the subject. Students who complete a concentration will be awarded a certificate by the department and have the concentration included on their college transcript.

Students can only select one concentration, although they are free to take courses that fall under other concentrations in order to fulfill other requirements in the major. Sociology majors have the option of selecting one of the following concentrations in consultation with the undergraduate advisor or they have the option of not selecting a concentration.

If this sounds like a degree field you’d be interested in, contact admissions to get started! For the most current requirements for this degree, please visit our Academic Bulletin.
