Sociology at CSU
Our nationally and internationally-renowned Sociology faculty are accessible and committed to doing teaching and research that matter. We prepare our students to effectively examine how broad social structural processes connect and shape individual and group behavior and – simultaneously – how we as individuals together shape and structure broader processes of change.
The challenges facing our world today are increasingly and increasingly global. Our discipline offers the critical analytical, research and communication skills sought by employers looking for people who can successfully navigate complex situations, work in teams and make solid professional contributions to effective solutions. Sociology offers students virtually unlimited opportunities for to make a positive difference.
