About the Program

The Department of Sociology at UCCS offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology that can be completed completely online. This program equips students with theoretical and methodological frameworks that enable them to move beyond individual experiences and understand social life. Through the program's coursework, students examine the impact of diverse social identities, systems of stratification, and culture on the broader social structures in a global context, to promote equitable and just social change.

Focus of Study

The online Sociology program emphasizes critical thinking, understanding and analyzing social phenomena, and gaining knowledge about global and local societies, social behavior, and development. We also emphasize collecting, analyzing, and interpreting sociological data.

Students learn about social phenomena such as deviance, globalization, multiculturalism, structural inequality, and the intersections of race, class, and gender. The program prepares students for professional and community settings and provides a strong foundation for graduate study.
