What will I learn?

Sociology is the systematic and scientific study of behavior of small groups and society. To transfer as a junior into a baccalaureate sociology program, students must complete a minimum of 60 semester credits. Students are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree prior to transfer. Freshmen and sophomores who plan to major in sociology are encouraged to complete additional foundation courses (including courses in the social and behavioral sciences) and mathematics.
