Sociology Faculty

Faculty members in sociology teach classes, advise majors, and oversee independent student research projects. Each member of the department has a distinct area of specialization, covering topics from race to class to gender, criminology to social movements, local community initiatives to transnational political and economic institutions, and more. Faculty likewise cover a broad range of theoretical and methodological approaches in their own scholarship, reflecting the rich and varied traditions that exist within sociology as a discipline. Thus, students are encouraged to seek out classes and advising from as many department members as possible in order to become well-rounded sociological thinkers.
