Sociology is the science that studies the social relationships of people. Coursework includes the study of a wide range of human behaviors from individual development, to relational growth, social institutions including groups, organizations, cultures and social structures. Available courses include:

  • Marriage and the Family
  • Criminology
  • Race and Ethnic Relations
  • Death and Dying
  • Sociology of Religion

Baylor’s undergraduate scholarly publication, The Pulse, promotes academic writing among students. Students with exceptional writing and research skills can have their work featured.  This can be for their classes or for their Honors or University Scholars thesis. The Pulse also provides opportunities for students to gain experience in the publication process.

Graduates of the Sociology program often continue to pursue their studies through graduate school. Others apply what they have learned in the classroom to helping professions, medicine, dentistry, ministry, religious education, law, business, marketing, counseling and criminal justice.
