About

The sociology major is designed to provide students with the theoretical and analytic tools to scientifically examine the relationship between human behavior and society.

It emphasizes traits essential to a multifaceted liberal arts education including critical thinking, social awareness, multicultural and global understandings, and effective written and oral communication skills.

The UES Program examines sustainability from environmental, economic, socio-political and cultural perspectives. It features a new generation of leaders who understand the complex relationship between human welfare and environmental sustainability will make much needed strides toward environmental sustainability.

While I was a student at BSC, I knew that my professors were invested in my success. My professors went above and beyond to help me with my studies and other academic endeavors. They challenged my way of thinking, expanded my academic limits, and always encouraged me to ask questions. I graduated BSC with a deep understanding of how social institutions perpetuate inequality, strong critical thinking skills, ideas on how to address social issues, a network of individuals in helping professions, and with the confidence and communication skills to address social injustices. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work degree and I often use the knowledge I learned from BSC in my classes and internships. The kindness and dedication that the professors at BSC give their students are what makes this school one of a kind. -- Cayla Bush '17 

“I started with my current employer as a natural resources intern while majoring in UES at BSC. I also had the opportunity to intern for the Coosa Riverkeeper and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. After I received my degree, Spectrum hired me as a full-time employee.” – Steven Dudley ’16, UES, Natural Resources Biologist, Spectrum Environmental Services
