List of Bachelors in Sociology Programs – Campus & Online

Sociology uses scientific research to help us understand how different aspects of our society impact people. Everything from our personal culture, socioeconomic status, gender, race, etc., to law, crime, politics, globalization, and environmental changes all affect who we are, and it all falls under sociology.

Since sociology can be such a broad subject, it can prepare you for a variety of graduate study and career opportunities. It’s also why many schools encourage sociology students to pursue a concentration, minor, and/or another major in a similar field, so that you can tailor your education to the specific area of sociology that interests you.
