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.
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.
