Why Should You Go into Sociology?
Sociology is a broad discipline that helps students see how their personal life choices (career, marriage, choosing major, etc.) are shaped by larger social events and circumstances. It raises their awareness about the current issues that could affect their choices in life.
The Associate of Science in Sociology is for students interested in completing a bachelor's degree in Sociology at Oregon State University. Students interested in this major are strongly encouraged to enroll in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP), as there may be lower division courses required by their chosen discipline that are only offered at Oregon State University.
The Sociology department at Oregon State University offers several paths for sociology majors, so we offer two possible tracks as part of our Associate of Science degree. Students seeking general training in sociology should pursue the General Sociology track. Students interested in a career in Criminal Justice can pursue a bachelor's degree in that field at Oregon State University by taking the Crime and Justice track towards their Associate of Science.
