Whether you are looking to go on to graduate work or immediately to the workplace, a bachelor’s degree in sociology will help you understand how humans are shaped by their interactions and will provide information on how to relate well with others in your world—all from a biblical vantage-point. We believe the Bible has much to say about relationships with others, what can cause problems, and solutions to those problems.
Sociology is the study of the development, structure, interaction and collective behavior of organized groups of human beings. Most people who think of themselves as sociologists or have the word sociologist in their job title have education and training at the graduate level. We emphasize the practical side of sociology along with the content needed as a foundation.
One of the greatest strengths of this major is the faculty, who will not only teach you, but also will journey with you over the next few years. Our faculty have years of practical experience in the behavioral science field, and many continue to work in their various areas of expertise. Many are engaged in research, and all have a commitment to the Word of God as the foundation of their work. They are also committed to seeing their students succeed and grow, even after graduation.

Education with a Biblical Worldview
At the heart of a Grace education are academically challenging courses that are specifically designed to foster a thirst for character, competence, and service within the hearts and minds of our students.
"At Grace College, I have had the opportunity to learn about common human behaviors from a wide range of perspectives including a biblical perspective. The professors in the Behavioral Science Department desire to see you grow in both intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. They challenge me to test my knowledge and apply concepts and skills I have learned. I am being equipped to seek the value Christ has given us all and help others see it in themselves."Camryn Stuart, Current Grace College Student
