Undergraduate Degree Program


How do human cultures and societies form, develop and function? In what ways do different social systems and environments support, encourage and care for children, adults, parents, families, elders, offenders and others? How can we create change within these systems?

When you major in sociology at Albertus Magnus College, you’ll study social systems and social change as you improve your critical thinking, analytical and problem solving skills within the framework of our liberal arts education.

Working with AMC’s accessible faculty in our small classes and on research projects, you’ll explore topics such as culture, social structure, inequality, race, gender, deviance and socialization, as well as gerontology, families, cultural anthropology and communications.

As you prepare for careers in professional fields ranging from social work, education, law and business to criminal justice and government service, you’ll benefit from the practical experience you receive in on-site internships with local social service and community agencies.

To pursue your study of sociology at AMC, you’ll choose one of the following concentrations:

  • Criminal Justice
  • General Sociology
  • Social Work and Social Welfare
  • Urban Studies

You may also choose a minor in sociology.
