Build better communities with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology

With a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Marymount University, students develop valuable skills that serve as a foundation for working with communities around the world as they approach ongoing equity, inclusion, and social justice challenges. In-demand, transferable skills — including critical reasoning, data collection and analysis, and cultural awareness — prepare students for jobs in a range of sociology-related initiatives in advocacy, community development, public administration, social service delivery, or urban planning.

Sociology coursework at Marymount focuses on contemporary social issues related to immigration, cultural diversity, gender and racial inequalities, and community development. While studying with us, you will gain an understanding of the full range of social dynamics impacting the lives of people, groups, and societies — from micro-level interactions between anonymous individuals on the street to macro-level processes between countries, like globalization. If you are inspired to develop the knowledge and tools to successfully pursue social justice and make a difference in the world, then you are well suited for Marymount’s bachelor’s degree in Sociology.

  • Global perspective and study abroad
    Most courses in the Sociology program take a global perspective. For example, in some courses Marymount students can interact with students and professors from other countries (globally networked learning). In past years, we have partnered with universities in the Netherlands, Mexico, and Egypt. In addition, we regularly offer short-term study abroad opportunities through the Global Classroom Series and Short-Term Summer Programs. Recent courses traveled to Colombia, Cuba, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Puerto Rico.
  • 3+3 pathway to a law degree
    Marymount has partnered with The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law to offer eligible Sociology students direct admission after successfully completing 3 years of undergraduate study. While in their first year of law school, students will simultaneously meet requirements for their final year at Marymount. This enables 3+3 students to achieve their bachelor’s degree and their Juris Doctor (J.D.) in only 6 years.
  • Maximize your expertise with a dual major
    With careful planning, you can easily complete 2 majors within the 120 credits required for graduation. Talk with your advisor to see how Sociology can partner with other social science programs like Criminal Justice, Economics, Politics, or Psychology.
