The General Sociology option is the traditional sociology major available at most American colleges and universities. The curriculum would introduce you to various sociological topics and concepts. You also have an opportunity to take advanced courses in areas that are of special interest to you.
This option is a good choice if you would like to study sociology but have not yet formulated clear-cut career plans. It also is applicable if you plan to pursue graduate work in the field. Additionally, it can lead to professional positions in industry, government and private agencies.
You may minor in sociology while majoring in other disciplines. Sociology is a useful minor or major when combined with other fields including computer studies, psychology, history, foreign language, communication, and economics.
