Sociology helps students to think critically about human social life, and how to ask important social research questions. Students learn how to think critically, evaluate, and communicate clearly, creatively, and effectively. These are all abilities of tremendous value in a wide variety of professions.
With a Bachelor’s Degree (BA) in Sociology, you may choose to pursue an advanced degree: MA, PhD, or JD.
