Our Studies

Anthropology studies and uses cultural knowledge to understand different lifeways and help solve human problems. The Anthropology major is for students who desire to bridge differences in this increasingly multi-cultural world.

Sociology studies social order, social conflict and social change. It reveals the impact of social forces on people and contributes to an understanding of our complex social world. As part of a Christian university, the sociology major confronts contemporary social issues by integrating efforts toward positive social change with vital aspects of Christian faith and practice.
