Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Sociology with a Minor

The BA in sociology is the traditional degree in the discipline and provides students with both a strong training in sociology and world-language proficiency. In addition to the university’s general education course requirements, students will study a broad range of sociological topics, which include the core courses (statistics, sociological theory, and research methods), and a variety of sociology electives. Students also will gain world-language proficiency. The minor requirement allows students to select a second discipline that complements their professional interest. The BA option is appropriate for students interested in pursuing graduate school, which often has a world-language proficiency requirement.  

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Sociology with a Minor

The BS in sociology combines a solid liberal arts and science curriculum with courses that complement specific career goals. Students will study a broad range of sociological topics, including the core courses (statistics, sociological theory, and research methods) and an array of sociology electives, together with the university’s general education course requirements. The BS in sociology with a minor offers greater flexibility, as there is no foreign-language proficiency requirement. The BS option is appropriate for students considering the job market upon graduation and can be appropriate for those intending to further their education with graduate study if they choose the elective courses to support that choice.
