Our versatile undergraduate major introduces students to social issues and processes in a variety of domains, including deviance, criminology, and the law; globalization and politics; population and health; and diversity and inequality.

We offer diverse signature undergraduate experiences such as internships, community engagement learning opportunities, and mentored research activities. Emphasizing interdisciplinary collaboration, community engagement, and a global outlook, we aim to develop first-rate scholarship and offer high quality education that addresses the myriad social, political, and economic challenges of the contemporary world.

The department is now ranked 3rd in the discipline in the country for the number of article publications in reputable scientific journals per faculty member and is one of the most productive departments in the country for generating new scholarly investigations in population and health research and global comparative studies. We are proud to house many nationally and internationally renowned researchers and award-winning teachers and mentors.
