“The function of Sociology, as with every science, is to reveal that which is hidden.” - Pierre Bourdieu
As you complete the coursework required toward an Associate of Arts in Sociology, you will investigate the social structures which guide our individual and collective behaviors. Topics include the intimate family, the hostile mob, organized crime, religious cults, the divisions of race, gender and social class, the shared beliefs of a common culture, the sociology of work, and the sociology of sports. Because Sociology addresses the most challenging issues of our time, it is a rapidly expanding field whose potential is increasingly tapped by those who craft policies and create programs.
