Sociology B.A. with Criminology Option
The Sociology major, with options in Criminology, Social Work and General Sociology, is housed in the Department of Psychology and Sociology. The Sociology major is designed to provide a substantial foundation in theoretical, methodological, and content areas of sociology, leading to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree.
The Sociology program at Cal Poly is intended to meet several goals. It is designed to provide a solid foundation for those who wish to pursue graduate training in Sociology or related fields such as Criminal Justice and Public Administration and professional programs in Social Work and law. In addition, it also provides an excellent background for entry level positions in management, in both public and private sectors. In the world of business, industry and government, the Sociology major provides a strong base for careers in personnel, management, training, sales, and related occupational fields. Many graduates work in government positions at the city, county, state, or federal level. In addition, many of our Sociology graduates are pursuing careers in the helping professions including health and medical services. Finally, some of our students, after completing their graduate education, pursue careers in Sociology in both academic and non-academic settings.
