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.
