Program Description:

An Associate of Arts Degree in Sociology prepares students for articulation or transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. The student who earns this degree typically has a career that involves dealing with people, often working for large businesses or organizations or in community service, public relations, teaching, or research.

While opportunities exist for people with an associate degree, the higher the degree, the greater the variety of opportunities. Students may want to consider earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership or continuing with their  sociology degree at the Dayton campus.
