The School of Arts & Sciences’ online sociology degree prepares you for a career in a variety of careers that demand a critical understanding of trends in social change, and data analysis. Because students majoring in sociology learn to systematically collect and analyze information about people and social life, they often work as project analysts, administrators, researchers, and consultants for a wide range of employers, including Federal, State, and local governments, international organizations, nonprofit and advocacy groups, educational institutions, social service agencies, research and testing services, law enforcement agencies, marketing firms, public relations agencies, real estate, and other businesses.
Sociologists study society and social behavior by examining the groups and social institutions people form, as well as various social, religious, political and business organizations. The results of sociological research help educators, lawmakers, administrators and others interested in resolving social problems and formulating public policy.
Sociology courses explore:
- Sociological theory
- Social problems
- Race and ethnic relations
- Quantitative and qualitative social research methods
- Social interaction in everyday life
In addition to the analytical tools and technologies necessary to solve complex sociological problems, the online sociology degree program emphasizes leadership skills within Saint Leo University’s core values and traditions.
