If you’re always wondering “Why?” and “How?” when it comes to issues like social inequality, race, or crime, put your curiosity to work in the College of Social Sciences’ Department of Sociology. Sociology is about you and the world you live in—you’ll study people and their activities, their work, their games, relationships, behaviors, beliefs, organizations, problems, and dreams. Through hands-on experience, you’ll hone skills in social research and statistical analysis—skills that can prepare you for a career in government, industry, or social services.
Several graduates of the Department of Sociology were honored at the College of Social Sciences Honors Convocation on May 10, 2013.
Sociology professor Dr. Jaita Talukdar published a book chapter titled, "The Before-And-After Template: Researching and Reflecting on Body Image Concerns in Globalizing India” in an edited volume on beauty practices across local contexts called "Global Beauty, Local Bodies."
The Honorable Robin D. Pittman, Sociology 1991 and J.D. 1996, has been selected to serve on the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law Alumni Board of Directors.
