Sociology

Students who major in sociology are prepared for transfer to continue their studies in behavioral sciences at four-year colleges or universities.

Students who study sociology gain an understanding of the culture, functioning, and structure of societies.

The Sociology program prepares students for a wide variety of careers in government, business, and non-profit organizations, such as research and demography, clinical and counseling services, applied anthropology, and human services.

Students can choose from three track concentrations to facilitate transfer to baccalaureate programs: sociology, social work, or anthropology.


Social Work Track

The social work track prepares students to transfer to major in social work in baccalaureate degree programs at four-year colleges or universities.

Students who study social work may work as direct service social workers and help people deal with problems in their everyday lives, or they may work as clinical social workers and diagnose and treat mental, behavioral, and emotional issues.

Social workers work in a variety of settings, including mental health clinics, schools, hospitals, and private practices.

Anthropology Track

The anthropology track in sociology prepares students for transfer to major in anthropology in baccalaureate degree programs at four-year colleges or universities. Students who study anthropology study humans in all cultures of the world, both past and present.
