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.

Applying Sociology to the Digital World. 

Our master's degree (Master of Science) in Applied Digital Sociology, takes the insights of sociological theories and methods to help understand the ways that the rise of digital media technologies are changing patterns of human behavior. Our program is distinctive in its focus on applied research in a world that is being transformed by digital media technologies. What this means in practical terms is that students are trained in how to understand the world through a sociological lens and apply it to the needs and demands they encounter in a world outside the classroom that is often shaped by digital technologies. This happens in a variety of settings, such as marketing firms, think tanks, non-profit and grassroots organizations, the health care industry, entertainment and social media companies. Alumni from our program work find employement in these fields as data scientists, researchers, policy analysts, ethnographers, and focus group leads. Each student in the program creates a digital portfolio of their work in the program, such as this portfolio by recent graduate Jacob Rosette.
