Sociology for a Changing World

Sociology is the systematic study of the collective behavior and culture of groups and organizations of people. The Department of Sociology at the University of Colorado Denver offers a bachelor’s degree, a minor, a concentration, three undergraduate certificates, as well as a traditional master's degree and a combined 4+1 bachelor’s/master’s degree.

21st century careers require analytical skills, collaboration, multi-cultural and global understandings, data literacy, and excellent written expression. A degree and certification in sociology provides students the knowledge, skills, and training necessary to succeed in today’s workplace and make the world a better place—this includes careers in business/sales/marketing, social services, healthcare, the criminal justice system, education, and research.
