One of the best benefits to a sociology degree is that what you learn will be widely applicable to many professional fields. Human resources, market research, public health, labor relations, counseling and victim services—these are just a few of the areas where our graduates excel.
As one of our students, you’ll learn and grow beyond your classroom work. You’ll get to better know our field and those of us in it through professional organizations. You can challenge yourself by joining our honor society. And you’ll get to see the world through study abroad programs.
Stay up to date on our research, recognitions, and other accomplishments. We also produce a departmental newsletter once a year, which you may download.
Our students remain an important part of our department long after they graduate. As an alum, you may mentor students, speak to classes, serve on our alumni board, and support our program in many other way.
We work with community partners assisting with data collection, data analysis, program evaluation, and other tasks. See our recent partners and learn how you can become an Immersive Learning partner.
