Due to unforeseen circumstances, all members of the Pima Community College (PCC) Governing Board will be attending the Board's March 8, 2023, Regular Meeting remotely. At the discretion of the Board Chair, PCC administrators and others making scheduled presentations to the Board may also be appearing remotely. Tonight's meeting will otherwise be conducted in a hybrid format as previously noticed, and members of the public may still attend in person at PCC's District Office, room C-105. During the "Public Comment-Call to the Audience" portion of tonight's meeting, public comments may still be made either remotely or in person. PCC staff will be on-site in room C-105 to assist members of the public attending in person who wish to address comments to the Board.

Sociology Concentration

Associate of Arts

This concentration is currently inactivated and is no longer accepting new students. If you are interested in this area of study, please see the Associate of Arts - Liberal Arts. If you have any questions regarding this program, please see an advisor.
For students currently in the concentration, the requirements are listed below.

Sociologists are a little like doctors. They don’t order blood tests to find out what’s ailing a patient. Instead, they put systems and institutions under the microscope.

For example, some sociologists analyze statistics to discover how social norms affect public participation online. Others investigate how public schools can better interact with students of different cultures. Still others research the role of police officers in the community.

At Pima, you will study how people interact in a wide variety of groupings: marital partners, families, cities, ethnic groups, global societies.

You are a good fit for Sociology if you like to analyze ideas for their strengths and weaknesses, and to use logic to draw conclusions. The ability to communicate persuasively and appreciate diversity also is important.

Students interested in Social Services should complete a degree or certificate in that discipline.
