B.A./B.S. in Sociology – Online

Society under a microscope

OSU's online sociology degree program explores the study of human society, social forces and social interaction. As a sociology major you will study how human values and community are shaped by class, gender and ethnic differences, and learn about abstract social forces such as modernization and globalization.

Sociology majors go on to hold successful careers in criminal justice, law, social services, education, non-profit work and news media. An undergraduate degree in sociology is also a stepping stone toward master's and Ph.D programs and law school.
