Welcome to the School of Sociology at the University of Arizona

The School of Sociology at the University of Arizona houses a highly ranked Ph.D. program in Sociology, a BA in Sociology, a new B.S. in Care, Health, and Society, and contributes courses to the Sports and Society track in the Bachelor of General Studies. We maintain our commitment to being a first-rate research program in sociology.

The School of Sociology at Arizona has a history of excellence in research and teaching, and has long been a wellspring of innovation in theory and methods. Sociology explores and analyzes issues vital to our own lives, our communities, our nation, and the world. The undergraduate major provides a foundation for careers in many professional fields, and for graduate training as a sociologist in academia, government, business, or community agencies.

Our graduate training prepares students for careers in research and teaching. The school is widely recognized as one of the top programs in the United States. Our faculty includes senior members who are nationally and internationally acknowledged authorities in their fields, and some of the best young scholars in the country.
