Humans are fascinating. If you’re interested in learning how people interact, behave and function in society—within groups large and small—a degree in sociology would appeal to you.
When you study sociology at ACU, you’ll gain an understanding of our social world—how and why it’s changing. You’ll examine relationships between people in their communities, families, churches, workplaces and other groups. Through this, you’ll develop an appreciation for diversity and hone skills in research, writing, data analysis, problem solving and critical thinking. In our information-oriented society, these diverse qualities will make you valuable to organizations of all kinds.
A degree in sociology also provides a strong foundation for graduate, medical or law school.
