We seek to foster in students and understanding of the range and complexity of human societies and social structures, and the methods that have been used to study human society. We also seek to inspire a value for diversity, and to prepare students for successful transfer.

The program offers both an AA and a certificate of Completion in Sociology with an Emphasis in Gerontology. These program sprepare students to work with the growing numbers of older adults in the population. This degree and certificate have not seen much student demand recently, however, and the program is placing these award s on inactive status i the near future.

The program also offers introductory, lower-division courses in sociology for general education and transfer purposes, ranging from Principles of Sociology to Marriage an Family Problems. All these courses are transferable to CSU and UC, and meet GE breadth requirements for the associate degree and transfer.
