Prospective Students

In a dynamic, collaborative, supportive environment, we provide resources and unmatched research opportunities, helping students build versatile skills that make them not just hirable, but marketable and secure.

Students come here because of our professional advising, our energetic Undergraduate Sociology Association and our relevant internships. They love our dedicated computer lab, our smaller class sizes, our education abroad opportunities, and our lively colloquium speaker series.

Many of our undergraduate students gain invaluable experience working hand-in-hand with faculty researchers at our Bureau of Sociological Research. And our award-winning faculty members actually teach some of our required courses.

Our graduates go on to careers in teaching, non-profits, government agencies, research companies, and everything in between.

We urge you to embrace your curiosity.
