Why Phoenix College?

Phoenix College’s sociology curriculum offers the study of human society and social behavior for students. Courses range from basic sociology to studies in marriage and family, gender and society, and overall social problems.

While our sociology courses do not lead to any particular degree, they may satisfy social and behavioral science or cultural diversity/awareness requirements as students work toward an associate degree or certificate. Graduates may go on to work as social workers or for agencies and organizations dedicated to the issues of society.
