An applied sociology associate degree will allow students to earn initial credentials in sociology at Stark State in preparation for transfer to a four-year college or university sociology program. Students will become familiar with the basic precepts of sociological thought, critical thinking and sociological methods.

In addition to transfer options, students who earn an associate of arts degree in applied sociology also may gain entry-level employment in both public and private service, as assistants to project and data managers, diversity consultant assistants, marketing consultant assistants, demographer assistants, and as entry level public and service workers of various kinds.
