Sociology

Students graduating with an Associate in Arts in Sociology for Transfer Degree are well positioned to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in a similar major within the California State University system with 60 units of upper-division coursework. Students who complete the Sociology AA-T degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students must maintain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework. While a minimum 2.0 is required for CSU admission, some majors may require a higher GPA. Please consult a counselor for more information.

The Sociology program provides students with a core curriculum that instills the knowledge, skills, and practices of sociological content, theory, and methodology. In addition to helping students meet general education and core requirements for transfer to an upper-level Sociology program or to fulfill co-curricular requirements for other disciplines, the courses are also designed to help students understand the structure, processes, and functions of society, the key theoretical approaches and insights that inform sociology, and the role of social theory and research methods in understanding society. Further, the program seeks to foster critical and systemic thinking and increase self-knowledge and awareness of the diversity of the human condition.
