The Department of Sociology

At Nebraska’s Department of Sociology, our students learn directly from faculty whose work is taught in classes around the country. These globally connected, interdisciplinary, professional educators choose to produce that fascinating, meaningful, engaging research here because we value creativity. We value risk-taking. We value innovation. 

We seek students who are similarly eager to tackle great challenges — and meaningful life-changing experiences.  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 Advisory Board, 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. Our award-winning faculty members teach in our required courses.

Our program’s graduates go on to careers in teaching, non-profits, government agencies, research companies, and everything in between. Some of our graduates hold high-ranking positions at major organizations that actively hire our current graduates.

At the Department of Sociology, we’ll help you discover your passion so you can let curiosity move you.
