Academic Concentration in Sociology
The Sociology Program offers an Academic Concentration. This means that students who are pursuing an Associates in Arts and Sciences degree can complete coursework in sociology that will be specially noted on their transcripts and degrees. This is beneficial because it demonstrates to potential employers and university admissions officers that the student has spent the time and effort to acquire some depth in a discipline, in addition to meeting BC’s normal breadth requirements. In short, it can help you “stand out” as an applicant. If you are thinking about majoring in Sociology at a baccalaureate institution, interested in careers where sociological knowledge might help, or simply fascinated by the topics discussed in sociology classes, then you should consider our Academic Concentration.
The Social Science Division has an amazing adviser that has been doing an outstanding job of assisting students with things like degree planning and course selection. For advising help, contact Deanne Eschbach either by stopping by room D110 or sending her an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org Her appointment calendar fills quickly, so please contact her sooner rather than later!
