Rae Madge, B.A. Sociology '21
I chose to pursue a sociology degree because I believe that understanding society helps develop empathy and compassion for people as they are.
"The greatest thing you will learn at King's will be about yourself and who you are becoming on this incredible journey."
Studying sociology at King's helps me take into account the social organization and hierarchy which exists in our world today that favours the privileged at the cost of the well-being of the marginalized. Learning this helps me to understand who I am in relation to others and reveal hopeful solutions to pursue a more just world where all are valued for the unique things they offer.
The greatest thing you will learn at King’s will be about yourself. Of course your studies are important, but paying attention to who you are becoming as well as what you are learning is so important. Let the information you take in fuel your self-discovery, your exploration of God, and pursuit of healthy community. Let the content of your classes spur you on in pursuit of the unique expression of Christ that you were made to be. You’re not supposed to be like everyone else! Let yourself wander through disciplines and be aware of what subject matter ignites your spirit. Your greatest gift to this school and this world is to be fiercely, authentically, and vulnerably you.
