Sociology: Your Social Life EVP (SOCE210e)
0.5 (semester course)
New for 22-23!
This course offers students a unique opportunity to compare Christian and humanistic perspectives of the field of sociology (the scientific study of society), and to consider major topics through the lens of a Biblical Worldview. Students will examine how society shapes human actions and beliefs, and how human actions and beliefs in turn shape society. Major topics include marriage and family, religion and education, the economy and politics, sports and entertainment, population and the environment, cities and urban life, collective behavior and social movements, and social change.
*As part of the EVP program, this course will have a live class requirement once a week at a set time; please see the website for time choices.

Have you looked around? The world is filled with stories of how our society is both amazing and troubling! Culture is so important and it’s constantly changing and shifting to new normals. As we consider different societies, family units, religions, politics, you will find that a Biblical worldview is truly an anchor for your soul in these troubled times. In our meetings together you will get to explore, question, encourage and learn about ways we can empathetically and Biblically engage with those around us! It will be a great time together!
