Sociology Major with Human Services Emphasis
The current CSU sociology major consists of the on-campus courses listed below. This major in this format is recommended for graduate-school-bound students:
Traditional Sociology Major:
The Behavioral Sciences Department is recommending a second path of study designed for students in sociology who are intending to enter the job market immediately after graduation. This career path would prepare them for immediate entry into jobs in the helping professions and later entry into graduate study in public administration or human services. This emphasis would provide real-world skills in such areas as management, accounting, business ethics, marketing and human resource management. This would make our students very attractive applicants to the 700-plus not-for-profits and numerous governmental agencies in the Greater Charleston Area or elsewhere. Fortunately, our CAPS program already offers these courses. If those courses are bundled with the basic courses in our existing sociology major, it creates a new human services emphasis with our sociology major.
