Earning a Sociology degree on campus lets students experience the excitement of campus life while also taking advantage of one-on-one interaction with top faculty. UNK offers both Bachelor of Science degrees and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Sociology.
Other notable advantages to completing a Sociology degree on campus include a wider selection of courses, excellent student and community facilities, personal interaction with other students in the same field of study, and the life-changing growth that comes with the campus experience. The hands-on learning opportunities are immense—research opportunities, internships, opportunities to study abroad, participation in Sociology Club, field trips, and much more.
Sociology as a minor or second major
Students who choose to major in another field will find Sociology a great fit as a minor or second major. Sociology is a broad science that encompasses several different disciplines. Criminal justice, psychology, anthropology, linguistics, history, and social work all share some characteristics with Sociology. Even if your degree is not closely related, a minor or second major in Sociology will greatly expand your knowledge and make you more employable.
An additional 24 credit hours are required to complete a minor or second major in Sociology. This is similar to other minors at UNK.
