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.
Three Sociology students were honored with departmental awards at the 2014 College of Social Sciences Honors Convocation.
Dr. Carol Ann MacGregor, Department of Sociology, and Sociology Alum Brian Fitzpatrick co-authored an article titled "Catholic Schools in the Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina".
Sociology Alum Ansel Augustine, class of 2000, was named one of Gambit Weekly’s 40 Under 40. Ansel is the Director of Black Catholic Ministries for the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
