Sociology Undergraduate Major (BA, BS, HBA, HBS)
Also available via Ecampus.
Sociology is the study of human social behavior and sociologists examine interactions within and between groups and resulting social institutions. The undergraduate program in sociology provides a general analysis and broad understanding of human societies and culture for persons in all fields. Selecting courses around a topic or theme of interest adds meaning to one’s education and strengthens the base of understanding from which one can pursue a career or further education. Two options are currently available for Corvallis campus students — Crime and Justice, and Environmental and Natural Resource Sociology — with the Environmental and Natural Resource option also available for Ecampus students.
