Home   Graduate Sociology


Sociologists conduct research to understand the social forces that shape all of our lives, often in hopes of improving everyday life and the life chances of each person. Graduate studies in sociology provide the people skills and technical skills to organize information, communicate analytical research to academic and lay audiences, and prepare well-reasoned and carefully-written reports and documents that contribute to societal well-being. Our award-winning and internationally-known faculty successfully mentor graduate students to complete their studies and become established in their professional academic and nonacademic careers.

We offer particular expertise in these areas: environment and resources, families, aging, gender, health, sexualities, life course, and race-ethnicity in US and global perspectives. There is also considerable expertise in: demography, social inequality, Latin American studies, Latino sociology, social psychology, deviance, and political sociology. We take great pride in the fact that our faculty are involved in interdisciplinary research projects that span nearly of all of the University’s colleges and academic programs, including: the School of Natural Resources and the Environment, the Water Institute, the Emerging Pathogens Institute, the Center for Latin American Studies, the Center for European Studies, the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research, the Health Science Center, and the Jewish Studies Center. Wherever you go on campus, you will most likely find at least one Sociologist from our department making major contributions.
