The Arts and Sciences - Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work program at Carroll Community College provides basic knowledge of human behavior and a foundation for continued study in Sociology, Anthropology, or Social Work. Graduates are suitably prepared to transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Maryland as well as other states. By following this program, students will be well-positioned to transfer to Towson University (Sociology or Anthropology), University of Maryland (Sociology or Anthropology), McDaniel College (Sociology or Social Work), Hood College (Sociology or Social Work), UMBC (Sociology, Anthropology, or Social Work), or Salisbury University (Sociology or Social Work). Students who intend to transfer to McDaniel may take SW2214 for the cost of a Carroll course. Students may also consider a free course at Hood College, SOWK 201. For details about either of these special agreements, see an academic advisor in the Advising and Transfer Center. By using ARTSYS, students can plan a course of study that will transfer seamlessly to an upper division school of choice.
