Sociology (Applied)

Earn your initial credentials in sociology affordably at Stark State in preparation to transfer to a four-year college or university sociology program. You’ll become familiar with the basic concepts of sociological thought, critical thinking and sociological methods while developing the critical-thinking, multicultural and analytical skills universities and employers are looking for.

Along with transfer options, you also may gain entry-level employment in both public and private service as an assistant to project and data managers, diversity consultants, marketing consultants and demographers as well as an entry-level public service worker.

Famous sociology majors include Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States; President Ronald Reagan; Robin Williams, actor/comedian; and Alonzo Mourning, former NBA basketball star. See more at www.asanet.org/about/sociology.cfm.
