The study of Sociology is the study of the development of humanity over time. Coursework includes the study of individual development, as well as social institutions including groups, organizations, cultures and social structures.  They also include political and religious groups.  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 social work, teaching or occupations in government agencies.
