About Sociology & Social Work

Understand Groups and Help Others


Understanding relationships is integral to sociology. Building upon personal and group interactions and collective behavior helps you understand the underpinnings of how organized groups work. All societies have a specific culture. By studying the development and structure of human society, you learn how societies function.

Social Work

Learn how to alleviate suffering by helping others. Discover why people need help and learn the specifics of pointing them in the right direction. At Butler Community College, you become trained in providing services to those who are in need either physically, emotionally, mentally or financially.

After you earn your associate degree in sociology or social work at Butler, you can transfer to a bachelor’s program at a college.
