Sociology is a social science involving the study of societies. Through analyses of society, its institutions, groups, processes, and social lives of people, sociologists attempt to understand and predict social interactions and change. Sociology prepares students for further study for careers in social work and counseling, social services, probation, corrections, law enforcement, research, public policy, law, education and other fields, which require an understanding of social life. The sociology program includes basic introductory courses in sociology, social problems, institutions, and social inequality. Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in sociology should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
