Sociology - Online Minor

Earn a minor in Sociology online through Ecampus

We invite you to discover the flexibility and ease of completing a Sociology minor online as part of your undergraduate degree program. A minimum of 27 credits of sociology coursework is needed to complete the minor.  Courses are offered by sociology faculty within Oregon State's School of Public Policy.

Application to all disciplines

Sociology is an exciting discipline that explores the study of human society, social forces and social interaction. Sociology fits comfortably into the missions of a liberal arts or natural resource education because it focuses on how human values and community are shaped by class, gender and ethnic differences, as well as more abstract social forces such as modernization and globalization.

Sociology is also available as a full bachelor's degree online

Through Ecampus, OSU now offers a full, four-year degree program online in sociology.  Learn more about how you can earn your bachelor's in sociology online.
