Students in the CCV Liberal Studies A.A. program can pursue a UVM Sociology B.A. program.
Ideas including role models, self-fulfilling prophecies, glass ceilings and the sentiment that "it's not what you know, it's who you know" are all concepts that originated in empirical sociological research and have since seeped into popular consciousness.
Sociology is one of the great fields of inquiry of the modern era. The idea of social relations or social forces, the idea that much of life is causally shaped by specific relations among large groups of people, belongs alongside the theory of gravity, evolution, the unconscious, and other seminal ideas that have transformed human life and consciousness in the last few centuries.
The Sociology Department of UVM carries on this field of inquiry. UVM’s Sociology faculty apply the sociological lens to everything from social class to sexuality, from crime to the mass media, from aging to leisure. Students are taught how to think sociologically and to apply that thought to real-world situations. Sociology students are exposed to a variety of subfields within the discipline.
