SOC design is a term used for integration of smaller subsystems into a single system block on a single IC.
A microcontroller is a "system on chip". It integrates the CPU core and various peripherials (USB , SPI , I2C , ADC etc...) on the same IC.

A SOC can be implemented on either FPGAs or ASICs (wich is termed VLSI).
