Sociology: Transfer

Sociology is the study of society, culture and human interaction. How do cultures get to be the way they are? How do major historical events affect social institutions?

Careers

What can you do with it? According to the American Sociological Association:

"A degree in sociology is an excellent springboard for entering the world of business, industry, and organizations. The sociological perspective is crucial for working in today's multiethnic and multinational business environment. An undergraduate sociology major provides valuable insights into social factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, education, and social class that affect work and how organizations operate."

Transfer Guide

Sociology majors are offered at UO, OSU, EOU and SOU. Many, many other colleges across the United States offer sociology majors - the oldest program in the United States.

Classes we offer include:

  • The introductory sociology sequence (Soc 204-206)
  • Juvenile Delinquency (Soc 207)
  • Race, Class and Ethnicity (Soc 213)
  • Human Development & Family Studies classes that will work as social science electives, particularly Contemporary American Family (HDFS 240)

Following the standard transfer program will get one accepted into most of the transfer schools. Appropriate early courses for Sociology majors are:

  • Science: Geology or Biology
  • Math: 105 or 111
  • Social Sciences: Sociology, Race, Class and Ethnicity, Economics, History, Anthropology
  • Foreign Language: Two years of a foreign language is required for a B.A. degree almost anywhere (and is a good idea in general!)

• Seamless, direct transfer degrees
