Sociology Department

At Sacramento City College the Sociology Department’s mission is to provide a high quality, intellectually rigorous and hands-on education.

Sociologists do not seek to simply study the world… rather, we seek to change it.

The Sociology Department’s Program of Study includes degrees in Intercultural Studies, Sociology and a degree and certificate in Community Services (with emphasis in Direct Services). In addition, the Sociology Department is home to Sacramento City College Service-Learning Program that gives students an opportunity to link a course with community service to foster civic and societal involvement.
