Future Students

The Department of Sociology provides specialized training in the core areas of the discipline (sociological methods and theoretical inquiry), as well as a number of substantive areas: criminology and social justice; culture and social relations; population health and wellness; power, privilege and resistance; global sociology; and social policy and social change. The low graduate student/faculty ratio creates an informal learning environment in which students receive considerable individual attention. Faculty members are actively involved in research, including many projects that readily lend themselves as the basis for student theses and dissertations.
