The Associate of Arts - Sociology Field of Study program is focused on preparing graduates for a continued educational career towards a baccalaureate degree after completing the program at Collin College. Upon completion of the program, students are expected to have enhanced critical thinking abilities, communication skills, empirical and quantitative skills and increased awareness of social responsibility. Sociology examines how social factors affect both behavior and the potential consequences of that behavior. It seeks to uncover the existence of social patterns, explain how social patterns come to be and explore the consequences of such patterns for different individuals, groups and society at large. Sociology coursework at Collin College is designed to provide students with essential life skills and a deeper understanding of themselves and others. Graduates are employed in such areas as the criminal justice system, human resources and administration, business, social work and government.
