Sociology is a vibrant, exciting field that involves studying humans in a social context. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock offers a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, either in person or fully online. Students explore such topics as gender, families, cities, minority groups, environment, and urbanization. Whether the topic is crime and deviance, marriage and family relationships, population dynamics, race and ethnic relations, aging, or death, sociology contributes a distinctive framework for understanding social problems and issues from the most mundane to the most profound.
This degree provides an excellent foundation to start meaningful careers or graduate study in a range of fields including law, education, counseling, social work, public health, and public administration.
Whether you’re planning to take classes in person or online, all students must be advised each semester before registering for classes. Talk to your sociology advisor about which courses will help you work towards your future goals.
