Sociology is the scientific study of human relationships—how people work, play, cooperate, compete, and live together in many different groups and settings—offices, homes, families, gangs, teams, neighborhoods, and cities. Our comprehensive undergraduate curriculum ensures that students learn to use sociological concepts and methods to help them understand real-world social phenomena. Our undergraduate program prepares students to enter many occupations that require the knowledge of social relationships and communication and critical thinking skills emphasized in our courses.
We also offer an MA in Applied Demography and a PhD minor in quantitative methods. Graduate students receive extensive training in the latest theories, research methods, and data analysis techniques, as well as mentoring and experience in teaching.
Alumni of our graduate program hold teaching, research, and administrative positions in universities, businesses, non-profit organizations, and governments throughout the world.
We hope you find the information here about our students, faculty, programs, teaching, and research efforts interesting and helpful. We welcome all inquiries about our undergraduate and graduate programs.
