Sociology

The Sociology Department seeks to develop critically thinking, engaged Christians who apply the sociological imagination in their scholarship, work, and service to church, community, and society.

What will I study?

The Sociology major, leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree, is made up of 9 required units and 21 elective units. The department also provides 18 units of sociology courses that the student can use to develop an emphasis or apply toward a minor in a social science area. A Sociology graduate will have a deep understanding of how culture, social environments and institutions affect our lives. Students will also understand the importance of seeking social justice as Christians.
