Sociology is concerned with social causes and consequences of human behavior. Subject matter ranges from the family to deviant behavior, gender to social problems, divisions of race, ethnicity and class to shared beliefs of a common culture.
A degree in sociology will prepare students for degrees/careers in the social sciences, law, business and other professions. Social work students are also encouraged to take courses in sociology in order to establish a strong theoretical base.
The sociology program offers individual courses in sociology as well as a two-year AS degree with an emphasis in sociology.
Students should check with the department to determine which courses are transferable to other colleges within the Utah System of Higher Education.
