Sociology Department

Sociology is a multi-faceted discipline represented at Hunter College by a range of scholars who use diverse methods from field research to quantitative analysis and theoretical inquiry.  Precisely because sociology is a broad-based discipline that encompasses theory, methods of observation, and research, sociology is both practically useful in analyzing contemporary issues and academically fascinating.  The study of sociology also meets four important goals of Hunter College overall: acquisition of conceptual and analytic skills,; development of intellectual and personal growth, widening students’ outlook by understanding U.S. as well as global culture and values,; and generating new knowledge to address local and international needs and issues.

Sociology majors may choose—but are not required— to group electives around the following areas of concentration:
