Sociology at UNCG

Sociology provides for a multidimensional understanding of an unlimited number of subjects in society including crime, social & criminal justice, family, gender, race & ethnicity, class, natural and man-made disasters, music, social inequality, housing & communities, immigration, the environment, globalization, social movements and education.  UNCG sociologists put sociology to work to both answer and raise questions on these topics and many more.  We are engaged teacher-scholars committed to advancing sociological analysis in the classroom, scholarly literature, and community.  In our department, you will find theorists, methodologists, and scholars with a variety of substantive interests as well as faculty with impressive international and national reputations for their research, teaching, and service.  We are committed to furthering the reach and impact of our work to better understand contemporary and historical social problems and issues.
