The Department of Sociology offers a major in sociology leading to a bachelor of arts degree. A major in sociology can prepare students for graduate work in sociology or other post baccalaureate training such as social work, law, public health, international relations, labor relations, gerontology, or family counseling. In addition, students can work in a variety of areas including law enforcement, social services or local, state, and federal government agencies. The degree offers a foundation in understanding the relationships among persons in groups, as well as relations between groups.

All sociology majors must complete at least one research paper from each of the two major research methodologies in the field: one qualitative field study and one quantitative study based on computer analysis. This requirement can be fulfilled in any of the 300- or 400-level courses as part of the course requirements.
