Sociology Transfer Major

If you find yourself interested in human social groups, social problems, social change and social justice, sociology may be the degree for you! Our Associate of Arts (A.A.) in sociology is designed for you to complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree at CCD and transfer to a university to complete a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in sociology. It offers the opportunity to explore social factors and human behaviors in society, as well as how social organization has developed and changed over time. Additionally, we have courses that enable you to apply what you learn and develop real-world skills. Through this A.A., you will take courses common to all four-year institutions in Colorado and develop the skills and preparation to complete the second half of a B.A. in sociology at a four-year university, as well as for careers paths in management, human resources, training and development, research, social services, mental health services, adoption, child care, youth services, disability services, child welfare, victims’ rights, labor rights, community organization and public relations.
