About this program

Bachelor of Behavioral Sciences – Sociology Concentration

If you’re interested in studying human behavior, particularly as it relates to patterns of human group activity and interaction, then you should look at East-West University’s bachelor’s degree in behavioral sciences with a focus on sociology.

In studying patterns of human behavior and interaction as well as the tension between individual choice and agency, the science of sociology explores a wide range of human behavior. From child-rearing patterns and the social meaning behind religious practices to the behavior of prisoners under a lockdown or even variations of levels of trust in government among members of different ethnic groups, sociology covers a lot of ground. The right degree program in sociology can also open doors to job possibilities in several fields.

Degree requirements are wide-ranging, giving students of this concentration excellent preparation for a variety of social science graduate degree programs. If you want to prepare for a graduate or professional school program, you should take courses in statistics, math, network analysis, computer programming, written and oral communication, foreign languages, and interpersonal skill development. These subjects will complement your sociological background and give you the ability to apply analytics tools to social and business problems. These courses also give you the ability to communicate with and lead diverse teams who work on these problems.

A BHS degree with a sociology focus on can also serve as an effective pre-law or pre-public policy preparation. Social issues and activism frequently lie at the intersection of sociology, law, and public policy, including criminal justice, family law, feminist policy, and environmental affairs. Related sociology internships and/or volunteer work can expose students to legal and policy issues and activist opportunities for social change.
