If you answered yes to some of the above, then UW-Parkside has a convenient, online degree completion path designed specifically for you!
The online degree completion program is designed for students who would like to finish their degree solely online after completing the required pre-requisite courses. Because the program was created for students who have completed prior college credits, new students or students who do not meet the prerequisites will not be eligible to enroll in the online sociology degree completion program.
Before applying, all students are highly encouraged to complete the SOCO Readiness Evaluation Request Form to determine if you meet the minimum requirements to apply to the Sociology Online Degree Completion Program.
The online Bachelor of Arts in sociology degree completion program is designed for students who have completed:
1. An Associate of Science (AS), an Associate of Arts (AA), or an Associate of Arts and Science (AAS from UW-Colleges only) and the equivalent of MATH 111 (College Algebra 1).
If you are a degree-seeking transfer student holding an AAS from UW-Colleges AA degree, or AS degree from an accredited college-parallel liberal arts program, with a minimum of 45 transferable credits, you are exempt from UW-Parkside general education and skills requirements. Students with 90 or more transferable credits from an accredited liberal arts baccalaureate degree-granting college or university are also exempt.
2. Completion of the following:
Please note an Associate of Applied Science and Associate of Applied Arts are degrees intended to prepare students for employment and will not waive the general education requirements. Students with an Applied Science or Applied Art Degree will be assessed using the same criteria above.
If you have not completed the required courses, we have partnered with UW Colleges Online for students to earn an Associate of Arts and Science Degree (AAS) or complete their remaining required courses to be eligible to begin the Online Sociology Completion Degree.
Earn your sociology degree online by completing the requirements listed on the program sheet.
