  • Market research analyst
  • Media planner
  • Policy analyst
  • Public relations (PR) specialist
  • Social worker

Earn Credits & Skills

As you earn credits to transfer to any CSU school, you also earn skills that will take you to the next level. Research, analyzing, communicating are just some of the valuable skills that are sharpened at Copper Mountain College. With your credits and your skills, you can tackle the world.

Understand the Why

Sociology teaches you about the effects people have on society and vice versa. Understanding these effects gives you insight to tackle social issues that are close to your heart. With the skills you earn completing the degree, you can be sure your efforts mean something.
