Address Social Inequalities by Pursuing a Career in Social Service and Public Health Fields with a Degree in Sociology

The BA in Sociology equips you with the tools needed to make sense of the shifting social world and contribute solutions to difficult social problems.

Through the lens of sociology, you will learn about the social causes and consequences of common human experiences and issues, including love, religious faith, identity, morality, gender, race, family, prejudice and discrimination, poverty, war and peace, education, economics, and the various relationships between the individual and the state. This knowledge can then be used across multiple sectors, from politics to social welfare.

Specializing in areas such as social services, criminology, public health, and immigration - we offer you a platform to delve into societal challenges that matter to you. Our courses are more than academic studies; they are gateways to understanding real-world scenarios from a Christian perspective, enabling you to make a meaningful impact. 

Connect with Experts and Mentors

These interactions are not just conversations; they are bridges connecting academic theory with practical, real-life applications, nurturing your growth both intellectually and spiritually. 

Empowerment through Service

These opportunities are not just for academic enrichment; they are stepping-stones to put your faith into action, enabling you to be an agent of change in society. By engaging in these practical experiences, you prepare to lead with empathy, understanding, and a commitment to social justice.
