We have 12 full-time faculty members who conduct research and teach courses on a range of compelling topics, including the sociology of culture, family, law, religion, education, work, race and ethnicity, gender, business, criminal justice, politics, immigration, sport, emotion, and health. Our courses offer students the opportunity to examine the often complex causes and consequences of socioeconomic status, gender, race, and sexual orientation inequality. Students can earn certification for concentrations in crime and criminal justice, business and society, and the social determinants of health and well-being.
