The Department of Sociology offers a bachelor of science degree. A minor in sociology is also offered. A solid undergraduate foundation in sociology secures the anayltical skills needed to undertake professional degree programs in sociology, business , law, and social services or to embark on a number of careers from management to research.
SCU’s Sociology students are encouraged, through course work and experiential learning,
- to apply sociology in business, public sector, human service, and community contexts to
improve organizational functioning
- to develop a client-centered orientation (identifying challenges other people face and assisting in addressing those challenges)
- to understand change and resistance to change in an increasingly diverse society and
organizations, and assist clients in successfully managing the change.
- to assume responsibility for getting projects done properly, independently and in teams.
