Sociology Transfer Major

Sociology is the study of social life, including social influences on human behavior. It is a “21st century career,” which provides students an opportunity to build transferable skills such as thinking critically, making evidence-based arguments, employing various research methods, interpreting data, writing effectively, and understanding diverse perspectives (American Sociological Association, 2013).

If you are interested in completing a bachelor’s degree in Sociology you should consider taking 12 credit hours from the courses listed below as part of your AA degree in Liberal Arts.
