University rank #179 (QS) , OH,
Sociologists investigate basic social processes and social change in an increasingly complex world. Sociological research addresses important and often fascinating questions about the social world, ranging from the micro level of everyday experience to the macro level of entire societies and cross-societal analyses. 

About

Our graduate program reflects the research strengths of our faculty, and includes specializations in Sociology of Health and Medicine, Sociology of Age and the Life Course, Social Inequalities, and Research Methods.

Many sociology majors participate in field-based learning experiences, both through their classes and through their involvement in faculty research projects. The Department of Sociology encourages interaction between students and faculty by offering many opportunities for individualized study and research. Our department has a long history of combining academic excellence and leadership in research with a friendly, student-centered culture, for both graduate and undergraduate students.

Especially with globalization and the increasing diversity of our society, many employers look favorably on the breadth of knowledge and perspective provided by majoring in sociology. Our program prepares students for rigorous graduate and professional programs, whether in sociology or in such fields as medicine, law, public health, and social work, as well as for interesting jobs. Graduates of our program are working in positions in research institutions, medicine, private industry, and the public sector.
