The Bachelor of Science in Sociology degree seeks to encourage students to think deeply and seriously, using both the Christian and scientific perspectives, about the consequences of social structures upon human social behavior in its many diverse contexts. Students learn about the norms of social behavior, the varieties of human groups, the extent of societal influence on individuals, and the reasons that efforts to control human behavior are not always successful. Importantly, students learn how to discover facts about human social behavior using the scientific method and how to interpret facts and information using theories about social behavior. Graduates can go on to careers in the fields of human services, politics, research and government service.
