PROFESSOR CLEMMIE GILPIN, Coordinator, School of Behavioral Sciences and Education

This major is intended for students who are interested in graduate work in sociology or who want a strong sociology background in preparation for social or government work. Sociologists are employed in such diverse fields as telecommunications, human resource management, public assistance, research, and college teaching. Indeed, a degree in sociology should be seen as providing an opportunity to work in any environment where an understanding of social structure and social dynamics is required.

For a B.S. degree in Sociology, a minimum of 122 credits are required.

Entry to Major Requirements:
Entry to the Sociology major requires 2.00 or higher cumulative grade-point average.

Change of Assignment Recommendation:
Students should generally have completed most of their General Education requirements. A limited number of 001 - 200 level courses are offered at Penn State Harrisburg for students who need lower division courses.
