Sociology/Social Work

Curriculum BES.SWK.AA (U224A44)

Triton provides students the opportunity to develop a comprehensive understanding of the discipline of Sociology and the applied field of Social Work. A student planning to transfer to a four-year school and major in Sociology or Social Work can meet most, if not all, of the general education requirements and some of the major requirements for those two areas. The specific major field courses completed will be determined by whether the student plans to major in Sociology or Social Work.
