BA IN SOCIOLOGY
ABOUT THE SOCIOLOGY
The Department of Sociology and Criminology offers a major leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. Sociology is a comprehensive liberal arts degree that provides an excellent foundation and springboard for working in today's diverse social, organizational and business environments. The Sociology major provides marketable skills in research, theory, and data analytics and knowledge related to social institutions, interactions, cultures, social inequality, and organizations.
We offer robust undergraduate internship opportunities that help sociology students develop a better understanding of a prospective career and determine whether their interests match a chosen career path, while simultaneously gaining experience with professionals in the field.
