Study a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at King's

The sociology degree at King's develops research, critical thinking, decision making, and communication skills through study of the social aspects of life.

Ever wonder why people listen to certain types of music, dress the way they do, commit crimes, or live in certain ways? Sociology engages these and other related questions by looking deep into the social character and systemic organization of human interaction.

The exploration of these and many other questions begins with the assumption that humans are social beings created in love. Human life is filled with moments in which we embrace, celebrate, lament, challenge, or take for granted the social aspects of life. 

Move beyond simply thinking about abstract questions and ideas about life and society. A sociology degree from King's helps you develop a wide variety of skills and insights that are vital for working and living well in today's world. Develop research expertise, critical thinking, and decision making skills. Learn new communication skills, report preparation techniques, leadership, engagement, resolution skills, and more.

Study the intricate social relationships of our world from a Christian perspective, and apply what you learn to your career, community, family, and life.
