Social sciences alum Susan Stoner retired in February 2015 as general counsel to Amalgamated Transit Union Local 757, and she reflected on her life as a hippie, activist and labor lawyer.
Sociology studies individuals as members of groups, rather than as individuals acting along, and explore how community influences attitudes and actions.
Because of the multidisciplinary foundation of the BA in Social Sciences program, the sociology concentration will prepare you for professional work in the nonprofit sector, social work, politics and government, community development and grassroots organizing, and applied research.
In the sociology concentration, you'll take the following courses, for a total of 18 credits:
- Minorities in the United States
- Society Becomes Visible: Classical Social Theory
- Sociological Imagination
- Critical & Postmodern Theory
- Two additional upper-division sociology courses
