The Sociology major offered at Grace College and Seminary focuses on looking at the nature of social relationships and interaction with others through a biblical set of “glasses.” We believe the Bible has much to say about relationships with others, what can cause problems, and solutions to those problems.
Sociology is the study of the development, structure, interaction and collective behavior of organized groups of human beings. Most people who think of themselves as sociologists or have the word sociologist in their job title have education and training at the graduate level. Most people who have earned a bachelor's degree in sociology apply their knowledge and skills to a wide variety of jobs in areas such as business, health care, criminal justice, social services and government.
The purpose of the Sociology major is to familiarize you with the content and concepts of sociology from both the Bible and the secular world and to prepare you for graduate school, work in the field or work outside of the field.
You will take courses in various areas of sociology, including social problems, marriage and the family and leadership. We emphasize the practical side of sociology along with the content needed as a foundation.
One of the greatest strengths of this major is the faculty, who will not only teach you, but also journey with you over the next few years. The faculty have years of practical experience in the behavioral science field, and many continue to work in their various areas of expertise.
