Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. The Associates of Arts in Sociology can lead to successful transfer to a four-year college or university baccalaureate program. Sociology provides 21st century skills for all students regardless of the major: The ability to critically analyze social problems/issues necessary for responsible decision making; a systematic approach to information gathering and interpretations of data; a fundamental comprehension of multi-cultural differences and global diversity. With an associate’s, students can begin working in the field as paraprofessionals in social service & business settings. The curriculum fulfills the freshman and sophomore general education requirements for most four-year colleges and universities. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.
Completion of this program guarantees completion of the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM). OTM courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public institution in Ohio on a course-by-course basis or in total.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
