Welcome to Southern New Hampshire University’s BA in Sociology.
Sociology can serve as a gateway major to explore areas of interest when students are still unsure about what they want to do with their life. It is a major which provides a foundation that leads to scholarship or careers across many related fields, such as social work, law, education, business, planning, and urban development.
A degree in Sociology can lead to entrance-level positions in multiple areas and yet the scholarly background one achieves is perfect for those who wish to go directly on to graduate school. This major has been designed with experiential learning and internships in mind, to get students out of the classroom and into the to experience work within neighborhood groups and private or public organizations, which deal with issues. So particularly for students leaning toward human services, public policy and planning, social work and counseling, they may find this major to their liking.
