Community college students are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate degree prior to transfer. Sociology is the scientific study of society, including patterns of social relationships, social interaction, and culture. Freshmen and sophomores who plan to major in sociology are encouraged to complete additional foundation courses (including courses in the social and behavioral sciences) and mathematics. The number of sociology courses should be minimized.
