Faculty: Dr. Alan Kemp (FS); Leon Khalsa-Maulen, Daniel Suh (PY)

Sociology is the study of society and human interaction. It deals with human relationships, development in groups, and processes of social behavior and social institutions, such as the family, religion and the economy. Courses in sociology are designed to stimulate critical and constructive attitudes toward society, to train persons in sociologically-related career fields, and to help students become better prepared to handle the problems of a rapidly changing world.

Students planning to transfer as sociology majors should complete AA-DTA degree requirements and must check with transfer institutions regarding specific requirements and transferable credits. The following courses are recommended, although sociology majors should work closely with faculty advisors to plan an overall program of study.
