Discipline Chair: Mr. Rick Coulter, 330-2722x4248,

Welcome to the Sociology Department at Central Piedmont Community College where we have several courses that will meet the needs and interests of students working on two-year programs, those who plan to transfer to four-year institutions and other who are just interested in sociology. Although the content and focus of study differs from class to class, upon completion of our courses all of our sociology students will be able to:

  • Evaluate and explain important sociological theories.
  • Apply sociological knowledge to real-world examples.
  • Think critically and effectively express thoughts and ideas.
  • Evaluate, synthesize, and integrate a variety of different ideas and concepts within a position.

The College Catalogue lists several sociology courses available at CPCC.  However, only Introduction to Sociology (SOC 210) is a Universal General Education Transfer Component Course (UGETC).
