Online Sociology courses

Sociology is the study of society and the social frameworks we live within. It explains how people view and form relationships with each other as well as how communities and nations are created and held together. It also seeks to help explain how we interact as humans in groups – both big and small.

Our sociology courses focus on the complexities of societies and the nature of roles within them. You'll explore how diversity, culture, association and collaboration play a part in the formation of our social interactions and influence societal change. You can also study teamwork, conflict resolution and gender roles in society.

Enroll in a sociology course and explore topics such as:

  • Teamwork, collaboration and conflict resolution.
  • The implications of ethnicity, culture and diversity.
  • The issues, challenges and opportunities presented by diversity.
  • The people and cultures of Asia and contemporary Latin America.

When you are a student you will be able to access a range of online tools such as writing help, math assistance and even career guidance. These resources are designed to help you make the most of your education and overcome any obstacles you might face.

You can take an individual class for personal development or apply your credit toward one of our degree programs. Please note, if you plan on transferring your credits to an outside educational institution, it is important that you check with them to determine if credits are transferrable before enrolling.

Our goal is to help working adults get the education they need with courses that are convenient and flexible. You can take sociology courses online from anywhere, doing coursework whenever it fits into your schedule. Call 866.484.1815 to get started today or request more information.
