Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:

  1. analyze their personal experiences using the sociological imagination;
  2. apply sociological concepts to the analysis of social issues and problems;
  3. explain the effect that social forces and social institutions have on individual and group behavior;
  4. understand structural inequalities based on age, race, class, gender and other social constructions resulting in differences of power, property and prestige;
  5. evaluate the quantitative and qualitative methods used in sociological research; and
  6. pursue careers in social welfare and social change and/or pursue graduate study in the social sciences.

Transfer Pattern Description:

This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Sociology. Beyond the General Education requirements and other degree, program, and elective requirements, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.
