The mission of the Online Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology (B.A.) is to prepare students to succeed in the 21st century, where careers are marked by perpetual change, human diversity, and enhanced analytical and social skill requirements.  Students take foundational coursework in sociological theory, social research methods, and on topics of pressing sociological and public concern-particularly those relating to the persistence of inequality, challenges facing social institutions, and the impact of these issues on everyday life.  By doing so, the Sociology Program seeks to build student capacity to effectively investigate and apply relevant frames of social context and perspective to complex social issues, preparing them to make meaningful contributions at work and in their communities.
