Academic Programs

Students majoring in Sociology choose one of the following areas for an academic emphasis:

  • General Sociology,
  • Social Work.

The objectives of the major are for students to: 1) use a sociological perspective in understanding the influence of culture and social structure on human behavior; 2) explore theories, research, and helping skills in sociology and social work; 3) prepare students for a variety of career settings.

A final departmental exit exam is to be passed by all majors at a grade level of C or above before graduation.
