Sociology introduces students to the dynamic, multifaceted and complex world of people. With a community development focus, Geneva’s program equips students to understand social theory related to the everyday social life of communities. And each portion of the sociology program is connected to a valuable and practical hands-on experience. As with all of Geneva′s programs, special attention is given to the unique contribution Christians can make in the social realm as loving service to Christ.
Sociology graduates are equipped for employment in a wide variety of fields and are frequently employed in helping professions, business and various public sector positions. Employment opportunities include entry-level positions in administration, advertising, banking, counseling, community planning, health services, journalism, group and recreation work, marking, sales, human resources and social services.
