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.
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 Brian Fitzpatrick, class of 2014, has been accepted to the Ph.D. program in Sociology at Notre Dame. Brian has been accepted with full funding and he plans to continue studying the sociology of education.
