This has made us one of the most distinctive sociology departments in the world, with faculty expertise on every world region—indeed we have the largest such concentration of any department of our size. We seek to make sense of the astonishingly diverse and deep-seated global processes and movements that transform our lives. Faculty and students alike are engaged worldwide in academic research, publications, and public sociology work, as can be seen if you explore our website.
We have special research strengths in critical study of political economy: hierarchies of class, race and gender; social movements; world-systems analysis; and culture, power and knowledge. We offer our students, drawn from all over the globe, a friendly, supportive and vibrant teaching and research environment.
