The Social Science Division at Cornerstone University integrates deep faith and rigorous academics to prepare you to research human behavior in a variety of contexts. Your research-driven studies in this division will be fused with sound biblical teaching designed to grow your relationship with Christ.

You’ll also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge through internship or practicum experiences.

Anna Locklear:
Nurturing Needs

Anna Locklear (B.S.W. ’20) loves supporting the people around her. Teachers took notice of this when she was in high school and encouraged her to go into social work. During her program at Cornerstone, Anna worked with her cohort of classmates along with her professors to learn the principles she needed for a future career and also the skills to nurture and care for those who need it. Anna is now studying for her Master of Social Work at Loyola University in Chicago, Ill., where she works with at-risk youth and individuals facing homelessness.
