We have a tradition of close collaboration with our students. We pride ourselves on providing world-class, hands-on intellectual support and guidance.
When pursuing a degree in Sociology, you have the opportunity to work with faculty who have expertise and experience in the field. Take advantage of office hours to talk with your instructors about your performance in class, the content of assignments, and how the course helps you work toward your goals. You also have the opportunity to meet and work with other sociology students.
Our department offers a number of ways to enhance your major. You can work with a faculty sponsor as a research assistant, conduct research in the Sociology Lab, or serve as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (UTA) or Undergraduate Research Assistant (URA). If you want to focus on a specialty area, you can take SOC-X 490 Individualized Readings in Sociology.
