Sociology Program Information

Sociologists look at the social forces that shape people's attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs. The main focus of sociology is the group, not the individual.

As a student of sociology at Kishwaukee College, you will gain a more liberal understanding of the human condition. Our sociology courses provide an excellent foundation for students wishing to major in sociology at a four-year college or university. Most likely, you will also be expected to take most of the sociology courses required for a sociology major at the four-year school to which you transfer.

As with most programs in the liberal arts or social sciences, a wide range of occupations are open to baccalaureate (bachelor's degree) graduates who major in sociology. However, working as a professional, the sociologist typically requires an advanced degree, either a master's or doctorate.
