Sociology, AA


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree and Certificate List

Sociology focuses on patterns of human behavior within social contexts, seeking to understand both the forces that mold us as individuals and the elements that govern our social existence. Sociology’s subject arena ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob, from crime to religion, from the divisions of race, gender, and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture. Courses offered in the curriculum may be taken to fulfill general education requirements in the social sciences; and they may be applied toward a major in sociology for the Associate in Arts degree.

Total Units Required: 18


To earn the associate degree:


See Earning an Associate Degree  for associate degree graduation requirements.

To transfer:


Courses required for the associate degree major at IVC may not be the same as those required for the major at a four-year school. If you plan to transfer, consult a counselor to identify the courses needed for the major at your transfer school and to develop a plan that will best meet your goals. View more information about transfering at Transfer to a Four-Year Institution .
