Associate of Arts in Sociology

The Sociology degree information on this page is provided for those students who have declared Sociology as their major prior to Fall 2021. No new Sociology majors are accepted into this program beginning in Fall 2021, as the program will be terminated effective Spring 2023. This information is provided to inform already-enrolled Sociology majors how to finish their degree before Spring 2023. Current majors should contact their advisor to plan their course work toward degree completion or transfer possibilities.

With sociology as your major, you have a world of options open to you in a variety of government, nonprofit, and business settings. Most students who study sociology transfer to complete their four- year degrees and then master’s or professional degrees, and work as teachers, attorneys, health care professionals, public servants, government officials, business and civic leaders, counselors, personnel managers, ministers, mental health professionals, and a wide spectrum or other career fields.

According to a recent Money Magazine survey, sociologists rank sixth our of 100 desirable careers overall. Demand for sociologists is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.
