Undergraduate Degrees

Degrees offered in Sociology include BS in Sociology, BA in Sociology and a Sociology Minor. The program is committed to baccalaureate study which creates liberating educational experiences for each major. Under the personal and concerned guidance of faculty, students matriculate in one of two baccalaureate programs - the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or the Bachelor of the Arts (B.A.). The Bachelor or Science degree is designed for students whose interests are more quantitative, while the Bachelor of Arts offers a traditional liberal arts education.
