Mission

The mission of Department of Sociology is fostering, through teaching and research, a systematic understanding of human societies and cultures. This includes an understanding of how societies and cultures shape individuals and how, in turn, informed social action can create meaningful social change. Our students experience a rigorous curriculum involving methodological, theoretical, experiential, and substantive training aimed at enhancing critical thinking, social awareness, and a globally-oriented conception of inequality and justice. As a result, our graduates are prepared for a range of career options, post-graduate educational opportunities, and a life of engaged, democratic citizenship.
