Bachelor of Arts in Sociology

Our small classes are taught by faculty who are respected teachers, scholars, and leaders in the sociology field, including the author of a recently released book described as the first to cover the entire history of 20th-century corporate social responsibility. Our courses will prepare you in multiple areas as you receive training in research methods, statistical analysis, theory, writing, and critical thinking. You can even choose to double major and pair your sociology degree with, for example, criminal justice or psychology. You will also apply theories to field experience with a capstone project and senior practicum.

You will have many chances to learn lessons outside of the classroom, starting with UHart’s Center for Social Research, which provides invaluable hands-on social research experience. Our required internships place students in a variety of settings, including public schools, shelters, probation services, nonprofits, and at places like the Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice and the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunity. You also can team up with faculty on research and present your work at Eastern Sociological Society conferences. At UHart, you will have the chance to dream big and do great things.

With the breadth of study involved in earning your degree in sociology, career options are diverse and plentiful. Graduates are employed as researchers, consultants, government administrators, or in the private sector for a business or educational institution. Our recent graduates hold jobs such as club liaison specialist for Boys and Girls Club of America and events coordinator for a regional association championing high quality early care and education for young children. Whichever route you choose, our sociology faculty will always be there for you.
