College of Health and Human Sciences Department of Social Work and Sociology

The Department of Social Work and Sociology is a supportive community of committed faculty, staff and experienced sociology and social work practitioners who prepare students to make a positive impact on the lives of others. We are committed to excellence in education and our graduates are prepared to provide leadership as they meet present and future challenges with creative solutions. Through the study of sociology and social work, students gain access to concrete skills that are relevant to a broad range of rewarding careers. These skills enhance the student’s ability to assess new and unfamiliar situations, to select and apply qualitative and/or quantitative techniques in solving practical problems in creative ways, and to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing. All majors are required to take courses in Sociology, Statistics, Sociological Theory and Research.

Our ideal vision for the department over the next three to five years is one in which faculty are engaged in ongoing research programs and students are significantly challenged by the teaching and mentoring they experience, the literature they read, the writing and critical thinking skills they develop, and the diverse social worlds they encounter in research activities, internships, and civic service. We want to produce not only knowledgeable social actors but social change agents who through active citizenship and social responsibility are prepared to "make a difference" in the quality of others' lives as well as the quality of their own. Persons educated in the department would be equipped and motivated to contribute to the improvement of their communities, their nation, and their world.
