Department Goals

The goals of the Sociology Department for general education students are:

  1. To enable the student to develop a Christian perspective relating to humankind’s involvement in groups and in the larger society. This is accomplished in three main areas:
    1. studying the various principles of interaction that govern human relationship (social interactions),
    2. studying the various problems that face contemporary society (social concerns),
    3. studying the basic institutions of society and their interdependence (social institutions).
  2. To provide students the necessary methodological tools whereby they may uncover social reality in a variety of contexts (survey research, participant observation and content analysis).
  3. To demonstrate the practical relevance of the discipline by applying sociological insight and methodology to the work of God’s kingdom.
