B.S. in Sociology

With a Bachelor of Science in sociology from VCU, you’ll gain highly transferable analytical, organizational and interpersonal skills.

This can prepare you for a job in a nonprofit organization, business or government, or to continue with graduate or professional education in sociology, law, counseling, psychology, social work, medicine, education, planning or other related fields.

The baccalaureate curriculum in sociology seeks to ensure that each student develops a solid foundation in the basic principles, theories and techniques of analysis in sociology. It also encourages students to pursue an interdisciplinary approach by incorporating course credit from closely related subject areas in other programs.

Since students majoring in sociology vary in their interests and career goals, the curriculum allows for a great deal of flexibility in developing individual courses of study.

I have been volunteering over a year at East End Cemetery ... It is a wonderful way to connect what we learn in sociology, and specifically medical sociology, to the real world. I even got to conduct my own research based on the population of bodies found at East End.
