Department Head: S. Garner

Graduate Advisors: H. Pals and A. Sakamoto

The Department of Sociology offers graduate study leading to a Doctor of Philosophy. The Doctor of Philosophy degree prepares students for careers of teaching and research in higher education and for careers of research in the private and public sector.

Research and teaching in the department cover all major areas in sociology. The curriculum is constructed especially to support specialized training in the areas of culture; organizational, political and economic sociology; demography; crime, law and deviance; race, class and gender; and social psychology. The department helps students participate actively in these areas of scholarship by providing excellent research facilities and access to data, opportunities to collaborate in faculty research projects, and aid in seeking grants and fellowships to support their own work.
