The Sociology major is designed to prepare students for further studies in the discipline which will lead to the B.A., M.A., and or Ph.D.degrees. The Associate in Arts degree in Sociology will provide an introduction to the major theoretical perspectives, research methodologies, and related sub-areas associated with the field. The degree incorporates the primary courses required for the baccalaureate degree at many four-year colleges and universities, as well as establishes the foundation needed for later graduate studies. Students can also pursue the A.A. or A.A.-T degree in Sociology, yet decide not to attain the baccalaureate degree. The field of sociology provides students with a broad based knowledge of human behavior and social interaction, which is transferable to a multitude of areas, including education, law, medicine, government, administration of justice, and organizations.
