Studying sociology gives you research, communication, and analytical skills you need to succeed in today's marketplace. We offer multiple degree options at the undergraduate and graduate levels to help you reach your academic and career goals. 

More degree options = more career options

Students entering the department can choose from a variety of degree options including a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Sociology, with an option for graduating with distinction. Our sociology graduates have gone on to careers in law, consulting, data analysis, teaching, to name a few.

The sociology minor complements any major course of study by bolstering skills in research, analytical thinking, substantive knowledge of contemporary social challenges, and communication. There is also a summer minor program, which is completed completely online.

For graduate studies, students with a B.A. or B.S. may apply to the Masters program. Students with post-graduate degrees are eligible to apply to the Ph.D. program. Graduates of the master’s program often find employment in government agencies or in private firms that require professionals with research skills and experience in data management. Graduates of the doctoral program also work for government agencies and in private firms, and many accept appointments at universities and colleges.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
