The Sociology Program at Coastal Carolina University enrolls approximately 230 majors. Classes are usually of moderate size ranging from 15 to 40 students. Individual attention is available to all students, and faculty advisors work closely with students concerning academic advisement and career choices. The bachelor of arts degree program provides students with a solid background in traditional areas of sociology, including course work in social problems, sociological theory, social structures, the individual in society, and research methods in the social sciences. In addition to approximately 53 hours of core curriculum courses, sociology majors complete at least 33 hours of specialized sociology courses.
