The department of sociology seeks to: prepare students to lead fulfilling careers and lives through critical thinking and analysis of pressing issues; conduct exemplary basic and applied sociological and interdisciplinary scholarship; and communicate knowledge via high quality professional venues and through excellence in service, teaching and outreach.
We offer BA/BS degrees in Sociology, Criminal Justice, or Agriculture in Society major. Graduate students in the program are working towards either a MS or PhD in sociology or rural sociology. We work very hard to ensure that our graduate students receive teaching and research experiences to become leading sociologists in their workplace.
