We Stand Out
A low student-to-faculty ratio allows students to interact frequently with faculty as they receive advising and pursue their academic career.
Preparation for the Future
Our programs are designed to provide all students with what they need to enter the workforce or pursue further education.
Solid Research Experience
Classes in research methods equip students to learn and conduct research, an essential skill for those who will seek admission to graduate programs.
An added Christian dimension integrates theology with psychology and sociology. Many students choose majors in sociology, psychology or social work to prepare for ministry work. We also have many who double major with Christian studies.
Pi Gamma Mu
Juniors or seniors can join this international honor society for the social sciences.
Students have opportunity to earn class credit through faculty-led cross-cultural travel experiences.
Faculty offer students opportunities to attend professional conferences which often include student presentations.
Prepared for Continued Study
Many sociology and psychology majors continue to pursue graduate degrees, and our programs are designed to equip graduates to excel as they do.
Prepared for the Workforce
Most social work majors enter the workforce after graduation, although if they choose to take fundamental research courses, they can also successfully pursue graduate work.
Variety of Job Opportunities
Majors in psychology, sociology or social work prepare graduates for many job markets, including government service, social services and Christian ministry.
