SociologySociology is the study of human behavior in groups. Human interaction is examined within the context of cultures, social structures, social institutions, and the socialization process. The self and social roles integrate individuals into the fabric of society. Individuals with a sociology background can find  employment in nearly all walks of life, including business, agricultural organizations, labor relations, industrial research, market analysis, and academic institutions. Many graduates in sociology find employment in social work and criminal justice. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans. These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree. PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
