Graduate Studies



Our faculty contribute to the discipline's core debates and to several fields of study, including crime and deviance, race and ethnicity, environmental sociology, social inequality, political sociology, gender, social institutions, the family, and social psychology. But the faculty interests span the discipline, from studies focusing on the international political economy to the hands on study of communities -- with wide array of specialties represented.

On a methodological front, faculty employ a wide range of methods and provide support to students to develop skills along these lines. Our program's size and our setting allow students to become acquainted with and to collaborate with members of the faculty.
