The department's faculty represent diverse sociological specialties, theoretical approaches, and methodological styles, all of which enhance the program's balanced graduate curriculum. We're large enough to include expertise in several substantive sub-areas of sociology, yet small enough to generate intimate graduate seminars and primary relationships between faculty members and graduate students.
Over the past decade, our faculty have received numerous awards at the university, state and national levels for teaching, research, outreach and service. The faculty share a passion for teaching and are highly active in research. In addition to publishing academic monographs, and peer reviewed articles in a wide variety of scholarly journals, various members have received national grants, international recognition for publications, and served as editors or advisory board members for national and international journals.
We invite you to further explore our graduate opportunities through the links provided here. You'll find our current graduate manual, core requirements, recommended timeline for completion, as well as links to descriptions of our specialty areas. We also encourage you to check out the University's course catalog, with descriptions and details of all courses that fall under Sociology, and Anthropology.
