NCC does not offer a degree in Sociology.  However, sociology courses are an important part of the Liberal Arts transfer degree, which represents the first two years of a bachelor's degree. Students must take Cultural Anthropology and Principles of Sociology, and may select the remaining two courses from American Ethnicity, Sociology of Families, Deviance, Sociology of Gender, and Social Problems.

Sociology is the study of social structures and looks at the constructions that exist in all societies that make up our realities. Sociology courses generally focus on institutions common to most cultures like government, families, religions, economics, and education. Other topics may include the media, race relations, gender inequality, law enforcement, and deviance.
