Students may complete the first two years of study toward a bachelor's degree in sociology, anthropology or social and criminal justice by following the suggested curriculum. Sociology is the discipline that explores how people create and maintain society, develop culture and organize the patterns of their lives in families, groups and institutions. Through sociology, students develop skills in analysis, communication and reasoning.
High school class suggestions include sociology, psychology and/or other social sciences, math preparation for college algebra and/or statistics, and writing.
Students completing the suggested curriculum earn an Associate in Arts degree.
BSC has cooperative agreements with Dickinson State University and Minot State University and several other four-year institutions that allow students to continue with a bachelor's degree on the BSC campus. Those transferring to other institutions should consult the catalog of the transfer institution for possible BSC course modifications, if needed.
