Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Sociology – Service Learning Content Track

Service Learning Content Track

The Service Learning content track builds upon the sociology core with an emphasis on community engagement to foster a deep understanding of the sociological perspective, its theoretical foundations, and its methods. Service learning is central to a rigorous curriculum that presents students with the opportunity to apply classroom theories to unscripted problems in real-life settings. Bringing their experiences back to the classroom for reflection, discussion and debate, students make powerful connections between theory and practice. In this way, sociological understanding informs students’ service, and service strengthens their understanding.
