We offer an undergraduate major and a minor in sociology with emphases in social stratification/inequality, immigration, race/ethnicity, gender studies, education, political sociology, and globalization. Our faculty are affiliated with several graduate training initiatives on campus and frequently involve undergraduate students in ongoing research projects.
