The Sociology Program is connected with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS).


Undergraduate Studies

Undergraduate Studies

The Sociology Program at NC State offers a B.A. in Sociology that emphasizes the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Students in the major will come to understand social inequality, patterns of behavior, forces for social change and resistance, and how social systems work. The B.A. in Sociology will also provide students with the knowledge and analytical skills to pursue a professional degree in law, business, education, health and medicine, social work, and counseling, or to pursue future graduate work in sociology in order to become a professor or researcher. Interested undergraduates can also pursue a minor in sociology
