The world is made up of groups of people with common traditions, institutions, activities and interests. Sociologists have the important work of understanding the collective behavior of these groups and how it impacts us locally and globally. Earning a bachelor's in sociology degree is an important first step for anyone who is looking to pursue a career in this field.
Sociology, like Psychology, is an empirical discipline in which training and experience in research are essential to a student's education. Post University's Bachelor of Arts in Sociology Degree program curriculum places special emphasis on the practical and applied aspects of sociology. Our Bachelor of Arts in Sociology Degree program faculty members have strong academic credentials and extensive background in the field.
Graduates of the Bachelor of Arts in Sociology Degree program pursue careers in family planning, substance abuse, rehabilitation, crisis intervention, geriatric work, social service agencies, and the security field, among other areas. A bachelor's in sociology degree also provides students with the foundation for graduate studies in sociology, criminal justice, psychology, law, social work, and counseling.
Students pursuing a bachelor's in sociology degree at Post University may choose from three applied tracks: Health and Community Services, Counseling Services, and Security Services. In order to participate in outside research, students are also required to take courses in statistics and research methodology, and are strongly encouraged to participate in internships prior to graduation.
