You will explore the historical, modern, and current approaches to matters affecting society and possible remedies through direct engagement and policy. Not only will you explore aspects of sociology from an academic approach, but you’ll also have the opportunity to engage with organizations and practitioners in the field through practicums and internships.
Areas of opportunity to work in include mental health, family crisis, people with addiction, working with those experiencing homelessness, felon re-entry, racial and economic inequality, and many more. Those areas are extremely relevant in any human services field, such as social services, human resources, counseling, law enforcement, and more.
The BA in Sociology program supports students who are aiming toward entering a sociological human service profession, and will also refine the skills of students who may already be established in their careers.
Coursework is specifically designed to allow for students to formalize their career goals and create a personalized capstone portfolio, setting them apart from other job-seekers in their fields.
Throughout the program, you’ll acquire the skills necessary to be successful in many sociological human services professions. You’ll feel prepared to enter into professional settings after exploring your interests and building valuable, career-ready skillsets at CSP.
In addition to classroom learning environments, the program offers dynamic internship opportunities, Criminal Justice/Sociology Club memberships, and alumni networking partnerships.
