Welcome to the undergraduate program in Sociology at Washington State University! Sociology is the scientific study of social life. The fundamental insight of the discipline is that the social matters; our lives are affected not only by our personal psychology, but also by our place in the social world. Substantively, sociologists look at a range of issues, from inequality to human ecology, from deviance to religion, from medicine to politics. Few fields offer students (and researchers) opportunities of such breadth.
The Sociology Department at WSU is diverse and energetic with faculty members who are committed to excellence in both teaching and research. Our unique signature courses and our internship and research opportunities provide students with the best in classroom teaching as well as hands-on learning experiences.
