The Department of Sociology at the University of Washington is one of the oldest Sociology departments in the country. Our distinguished faculty is actively engaged in both research and teaching, and we aim to bring excitement about Sociology to all our interactions with students. Our undergraduate major graduates several hundred students each year, and offers opportunities for student to participate in both traditional classroom based learning as well as hand-on-learning in our practica courses, study abroad, and honors program. Undergraduate sociology majors go on to work in a variety of careers, including social services, marketing, law, and teaching. Our graduate program is designed to prepare a select group of students for independent research careers.
