Bachelor of Sociology


Program Start: 6 September 2017
Application Deadline: 31 August 2017
Credit Granting Institution: U of S
Length: 3 years

Overview:

Sociology is the study of human social life, focusing on developing an understanding of changes in social structure and human interaction on an individual, societal and global level. Students in Sociology learn to analyze social issues and think critically about the world around them.

With a BA in Sociology, many opportunities open up to you. You can decide to continue on into graduate studies, working towards a MA and a PhD. From there you can focus on teaching, researching, or both. You can also leave the University after the completion of your BA or your completed graduate degrees and join the broader workforce. Many Sociology graduates find themselves in unique and fulfilling jobs, in areas such as politics; teaching and education; administration, business, and communication; corrections and law; public relations; community affairs; and research. You could find yourself working with the federal government or with a non-profit organization. Maybe you'll be writing policy, or advocating for human rights. The possibilities are endless because with a BA in Sociology, you are given the tools to think critically, apply problem solving strategies using your acquired researching tools, and communicate your ideas both written and orally in an organized fashion.
