The Sociology program at Bellarmine University embraces a strong social justice philosophy and encourages student activism to bring about a more just and humane world as envisioned by Catholic social teaching.
Graduates of Bellarmine’s sociology program have successful careers in corrections, police work including the F.B.I. and other law enforcement agencies, administrative or research positions in various social agencies, private sector business enterprises such as marketing and sales, and counseling positions for adult and juvenile offenders. Graduates also go on to do graduate work in sociology, social work, and related disciplines or enter law school.
