General Sociology Concentration

This concentration gives students a broad base of knowledge in the social sciences by exploring issues of social injustice, progress, economic disparity, and human behavior. This is an excellent choice if you’re interested in human services and community advocacy work. The broad base of courses in research, analysis, and the social sciences gives you a strong foundation for graduate work, too. Here's your suggested course of study, depending on the kind of sociology degree you'll earn.
