What will I learn?
An introductory course introduces the discipline of sociology. Students engage in the scientific study of human society by analyzing the ways in which groups, social institutions, and individuals affect each other, discovering the underlying sources of societal stability and change, and exploring various social issues in their institutional contexts, such as social stratification, gender, race/ethnicity, and deviance. This includes employing qualitative and quantitative methods, technologies, and or data to investigate the human condition.
How will these courses fit my college pathway?
Those who wish to continue their studies may transfer to sociology programs in Texas public universities. Although studying sociology confers communication, research, writing, and analytical skills that open the door to a diverse range of professional fields, graduates may wish to explore careers in counseling, social work, rehabilitation, human resources, public relations, survey research, or eventually apply to law schools or pursue graduate study in sociology or other related fields.
