Bachelor of Science in Sociology
The B.S. curriculum in sociology within the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences provides an understanding of theory, practice, and policy underlying issues of social change and of inequality and diversity from multiple perspectives, including race/ethnicity, gender, economic position, age, geographic location and position in the global political economy. The program enhances students' understanding of social realities and institutions at local, national and international levels, and how sociology contributes to the other social sciences and to the humanities. Students gain basic understanding of assumptions underlying the discipline of sociology and develop the research skills necessary for analysis of complex social issues. The B.S. program requires six more credit hours of methods courses (both qualitative and quantitative) than the B.A. This is a flexible program with individual and group experiences in working with faculty on concrete intellectual and policy issues.
