Sociology: The Study of Human Problems


The world is becoming more complex. How do your beliefs, values, and behavior affect the people around you and the world in which we live? Students will examine social problems in our increasingly connected world, and learn how human relationships can strongly influence and impact their lives. Students will compare Christian and Humanistic perspectives of sociology, and consider all major course topics through the lens of a Biblical Worldview.

Special Notes:

A stable Internet connection is needed for this class.


Studying sociology is an awesome opportunity to consider the patterns of interaction in the world around you! In this class, we study topics such as culture, socialization and social class structures, deviance and crime, race and ethnicity, and gender. There are great labs with videos that present case studies on these topics. Please join us as we try to understand these topics in relation to what God’s Word says about them, and how that is often different than what the world around you says about them!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Sociology was such an interesting class! I really enjoyed the practical and cultural application threaded throughout the course work and discussions. The many options for midterm and final assignments made the class flexible and interesting for any learning style and has made it one of my favorite electives!
