Sociology is a social science that examines the social lives of individuals, groups, and societies. The discipline covers a range of topics, from the analysis of short contacts between anonymous individuals on the street to the study of global social processes.

Educational Opportunities

Many of the courses in this program are transferable and some may be applied to four-year degree programs at other institutions. CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.

This program listed below is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts in Sociology from CNM and prepare a student to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at University of New Mexico (UNM). Currently, UNM offers two concentrations for the sociology degree: (1) pre-law and (2) human services and social policy. These concentrations have slightly different requirements; courses accepted for each concentration are listed. A concentration is not required to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at UNM.

Students interested in transferring to UNM should consult the UNM Sociology Department. Students from CNM seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. Students should always refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution for specific admission and curricular requirements. Students should also consult an advisor with CNM Advisement.
