Matthew Hughey, BA ’99

I am presently Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Connecticut.  I specialize in the sociological study of race and racism.  UNCG Sociology afforded me the knowledge and confidence to pursue the goals of becoming a researcher, teacher, and practioner of Sociology.  Whether I am now collecting and analyzing data on racial inequalities, teaching about the sociological contributions of W.E.B. Du Bois, or providing expert testimony for a legal suit on racial discrimination, my journey started back in the Graham Building.
