B.A. in Sociology

Students talking in a circle

Expand your horizons with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.

The B.A. in Sociology offers a coherent method by which social patterns can be brought to light and applied to the making of social policy decisions. But facts do not speak for themselves. Uncovering the underlying patterns that make facts meaningful is the purpose of social theory and the focus of our department.  

Research Opportunities
Many sociology courses include a research component, such as a survey, field research or participant observation. In addition, students are encouraged to conduct independent research projects in particular fields of interest.

Many of our students have completed internships at a variety of organizations and institutions, including media-related venues, advocacy organizations and law and social justice groups on Long Island, as well as the greater New York metropolitan area.
