PROFESSOR JOHN McCARTHY, in charge

This major introduces students to the study of human groups and their relationships to each other and to the environment. It enables students to gain some proficiency in the scientific study of group structures and processes. A further objective is to help students become more skillful in working with community institutions, agencies, and organizations either through gainful employment or as a volunteer. Graduates may qualify for admission to the baccalaureate degree majors in Behavioral Sciences, Humanities, or Public Policy offered at Penn State Harrisburg.

For the Associate in Arts degree in Sociology, a minimum of 60 credits is required.
