We offer two undergraduate degrees with a variety of subfields for students who wish to develop expertise in a particular area. Three minors and a certificate are also available. Our doctoral program exposes students to the full spectrum of research methodologies.
Gain new perspectives
Sociology courses explore many parts of society: work and the economy, health and medicine, schools, religion, mental illness, politics and government, race and ethnic relations, sexuality, criminal justice, and other topics.
Preparation for a meaningful career
In addition to learning sociological theory and research methods, our students have multiple opportunities to engage in hands-on projects and fieldwork, gaining translatable skills that are valued by a broad range of employers.
Diversity & Inclusion
As a community, we recognize that we comprise a diverse group of faculty, staff, and students, and we embrace and value the diversity of our members. We promote respect for all community members regardless of age, culture, disabilities, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, citizenship, race, religion, sexual orientation, first-generation status, and socioeconomic status—as well as other dimensions of difference not explicitly covered in this list.
