Department of Sociology

“Neither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both.”

C. Wright Mills

The Department of Sociology at Sam Houston State University is committed to furthering knowledge of social life, social change, and the causes and consequences of human behavior using the context of globalization. While in the program, students develop the “sociological advantage,” or the ability to examine interpersonal relationships and relate them to the larger social world.
