Bachelor of Science Sociology - Concentration in Work and Organizations

University of Nebraska Omaha

Sociology and Anthropology are the broadest of the social sciences. Sociology is the scientific study of human relationships. Sociologists seek to understand the ways that often unseen social forces shape our lives. Anthropology is the holistic study of human biology and culture across time and place. Anthropologists typically work within one of four sub-disciplines: archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and socio-cultural anthropology.

These disciplines are particularly useful to graduates entering the 21st century labor force. Our rapidly changing and increasingly diverse world offers both opportunities and monumental challenges. Sociology and Anthropology give students the analytical skills to understand such challenges and the tools to improve our society at all levels – from the neighborhood to the world community.

Students are required to complete 33 hours of coursework for the Sociology BA or BS degree: 21 hours of core required courses and 12 hours of additional sociology or anthropology courses. The department offers five optional concentrations that fulfill the 12 hours of additional coursework: anthropology, families and inequality, health and society, inequality and social justice, and work and organizations. 

Students in the BA degree program are required to complete foreign language through the intermediate level.

Students in the BS degree program are required to complete 15 hours of cognate coursework, a field of specialization outside of sociology based on their interests and/or career aspirations. Cognates are designed by the student in consultation with the undergraduate adviser.
