Are you fascinated by human behavior and how we are influenced? Sociology is the study of group behavior and social influence, which means CU Denver’s online Bachelor of Arts in Sociology program is designed for individuals who want to understand more about the world and the various ways humans influence one another. Students who enroll in this program want to work in one of the many fields where sociologists can find meaningful employment.
Our online BA in Sociology is a program for undergraduate students who want to earn a valuable, high-quality degree in a field that is full of professional opportunities. We offer three optional certificates for our majors, including Families & Social Welfare, Criminology, and Sociology of Health and Medicine. The BA in Sociology program is designed for traditional undergraduate students as well as non-traditional, adult students. It is for students who are returning to coursework after a long break, transfers from other universities and community colleges, and high school graduates who want to complete their degree entirely online.
Although the BA in Sociology is entirely online, the program is taught by the same high-quality faculty as the on-campus program. Most of our courses are taught by full-time doctoral-level faculty, the majority of whom are actively engaged in social research. The expertise and experience of our sociology faculty have allowed our online students to complete faculty-supervised research and graduate with university honors, which is very uncommon for an online program.
A BA in Sociology will provide you with numerous professional opportunities and career options. You could work as a human resource manager, urban planner, criminologist, policy analyst or social science researcher, among many other roles in corporations, education, government and nonprofit organizations. Many sociologists also work in higher education as researchers, writers and professors.
