BA Sociology Programs

The mission of the B.A. Sociology Program is to develop graduates with skills, values and knowledge that will lead directly to employment or graduate school.

The Sociology Program at Winona State University emphasizes four goals for our sociology students:

  1. We emphasize the comprehension of sociological research through reading, critical evaluation and the conducting of original research.
  2. We teach and encourage the use of the sociological perspective.
  3. We stress effective communication, both written and oral.
  4. We demonstrate an understanding of social equality, social inequality and diversity.

The WSU Sociology Program has currently been revised to better serve our students. The following program requirements are for students declaring a major or minor beginning in Fall 2012.
