Social issues exist everywhere. Today’s organizations need critical thinkers like you — brave individuals with the desire to learn new skills and address complex challenges.

At Maryville, our goal is to support your mission to build a better world. That’s why we offer a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology in a convenient online format.

Not sure which concentration is right for you? No problem. You can choose the program’s general track — or connect with an advisor to talk through a degree plan. Either way, we provide support through every step of your journey. Let’s be brave together.
