What is Sociology?

Sociology — the study of human social life and social interaction — is a field of study that has a fascinating past and an exciting future. Much of the civil rights work in America was moved forward by sociologists, for instance. Most career paths in sociology require a bachelor’s degree and EA is a smart place to start your academic path.

You can transfer with junior status after building a strong academic foundation in small classes offered at an extremely affordable tuition cost.
