|The Department provides students with theoretical and methodological tools and substantive insights which can assist them in understanding social life, social organization, and action. Our programmes are designed to provide students with a broad intellectual and sociological background which will help prepare them for a variety of careers and for advanced study at graduate school. The small size of our programme and the dedication of our faculty, allow us to provide personal attention to students and extensive access to faculty. Having relatively few requirements (seven courses in the Major), we allow students substantial flexibility in meeting individual intellectual pursuits.
The subject matter of our courses ranges widely from theoretical to applied study and our professors employ diverse pedagogies to facilitate student learning. The department has particular expertise in five main areas: Global Studies and Empire; Criminology, Law, and Social Policy; Media, Technology and Contemporary Studies; Gender, Diversity and Equity Studies; and Family, Health and Community.
