Develop a deep understanding of matters that permeate our entire society.

While studying sociology at Calvin, you'll look at groups of people—how they formed into groups and how that will influence future behavior. You'll explore the darker corners of human experience with courses like "Sociology of Deviance," along with more contemporary topics like "Hollywood - A Sociological Perspective." You'll approach every challenging discussion and gripping case study with the guidance of experienced faculty and a worldview rooted in Reformed understanding. And you'll leave Calvin intimately familiar with the tendencies of those you'll meet in the world.
