Sociology (Arizona State University)
A four-year course in sociology allows you to impact the world through an in-depth understanding of social movements, broad trends in human behavior and the historical significance of contemporary social issues. A BS in sociology requires 120 credit hours and a range of classes that target key social institutions, such as education, family systems, workplace groups and religion. Students may wish to specialize in a particular societal setting or study broad research and practice methods that can be used to work in any social institution.
Students will also learn how to use computer skills, relevant research techniques and written communication to communicate policies, practices and document behaviors on a group or societal level. After completing all the sociology coursework, you will be prepared for a career in social work, law, counseling or a variety of government positions. Your studies will include history, behavioral and social sciences, statistics and analysis and other relevant courses.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
