UNC Charlotte’s B.A. in Sociology Now Available Online

June 4, 2021

UNC Charlotte expands its online bachelor’s degree completion programs this fall with the Bachelor of Arts in Sociology: Concentration in Organizations, Occupations, and Work. 

Offered 100% online, the program is designed to be flexible, and can be completed in as little as five semesters if enrolled full-time, and seven semesters if enrolled part-time. 

“Over 1 million adults and working professionals in North Carolina have earned some college credits, but no degree,” said Asher Haines, interim executive director of the UNC Charlotte Teaching and Learning Connection. “This 100% online option in a degree with broad appeal across many industries is designed for busy adults who want to finish what they started and advance their professional goals.” 

Students who complete the program are trained to fill roles like: human resources specialists; community and social service managers; urban and regional planners’ federal, state and local government administrators; legal and business sector professionals; and more. 

“We are excited to offer this new opportunity for students to complete a sociology degree,” said Dr. Scott Fitzgerald professor and chair, Department of Sociology. "Our faculty have significant experience with online teaching and have designed courses for this program that are both flexible and engaging. We look forward to welcoming our new online sociology students into the intellectual and social community that is UNC Charlotte.”
