The Department of Sociology and Social Work at Grove City College prepares students to excel in both competitive graduate programs and careers in sociology.
The Department of Sociology and Social Work offers courses leading to a specialized Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology. It educates students about the social world and those disciplines that have historically sought to apply humanistic and scientific principles to describe and explain human behavior at all levels.
The sociology curriculum at Grove City College rests upon the belief that the study of social relationships and social organization is essential for all who are committed to shaping our nation upon the ideals and institutions of a free society. The department prepares students (majors and non-majors) for careers in public policy, graduate study and professional research, and criminal justice.
