Sociology, A.A.


Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical

Sociology is the scientific study of social interaction. Its subject matter is broad in scope, ranging from intimate family life to large social movements, from criminal behavior to religious activity, from unique characteristics of specific ethnic groups to the shared norms of an entire culture, from analysis of occupations to that of leisure.

Employers look for people with the research and analysis skills that an undergraduate education in sociology provides.

With its intrinsically interesting subject matter, sociology offers valuable preparation for careers in journalism, politics, public relations, business, or public administration or other fields that involve investigative skills and working with diverse groups.
