The Associate of Arts degree in sociology is designed primarily for the student who plans to transfer to a four-year institution and pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology. The program is designed around the requirements set by the University of Wyoming for a four-year degree. Also, the program can help prepare students in studies other than sociology including international studies, pre-law, administration of justice, library preprofessional, and aging and human development.

A minimum of 64 semester credit hours is required for a degree. Students should consult with an adviser in order to ensure that all courses selected are appropriate and transferable. All degree candidates must complete two semesters of a foreign language (8 semester hours).
