In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, the full-time faculty Sociology members are actively involved in research within their respective disciplines. Each year they publish numerous articles and books, present papers at state, regional and national meetings and secure research grants from private, state and federal sources to advance knowledge in their disciplines. Our faculty profile pages include a list of their most recent research publications. The diverse research interests of our sociology faculty provide a variety of opportunities for students interested in first-hand research experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Students interested in working with our faculty on undergraduate research projects or on existing faculty research projects are encouraged to contact their sociology faculty. View faculty listing by specialization.
