The Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences at The University
of Memphis is proud to offer the online Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. The degree
requires a total of 120 credit hours.
Students in the degree program work closely with the departmental academic advisor
to design a program of study that makes the best use of faculty expertise in such
areas as social, racial, ethnic, and income inequality, family, medical, educational
and urban sociology, deviant behavior and social problems, and the methodology of
social research. Specific information about the major and a typical four year program
of study can be found at http://www.memphis.edu/ugcatalog/collegeprog/cas/sociology.php.
A student may complete this degree entirely online, by combining online courses with
courses offered at The University of Memphis campus, or by combining University of
Memphis courses (online and on campus) with a limited number of approved courses transferred
from other institutions (see the program link above).
Students who successfully complete the Bachelor of Arts in Sociology develop the major
skill set identified by the American Sociological Association as resume assets: conducting
research and analyzing data, skillful communication, critical thinking skills, a global
perspective, and preparation for graduate school.
