"Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Sociologists investigate the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact within these contexts. The subject matter of sociology ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob; from organized crime to religious cults; from the divisions of race, gender and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture; and from the sociology of work to the sociology of sports. Few fields have the broad scope and relevance for research, theory, and application of knowledge that Sociology has." American Sociological Association

As Christian sociologists, we study sociology to better understand human relationships and the way in which sin affects them in this fallen world where we see suffering and injustice. By actively studying, diligently researching, and consciously participating in society, we are able to discover ways in which God is calling us to be His agents of renewal here on earth.
