Sociology at USC

We are a department with a proud history, and a wide range of research and teaching interests and methodological approaches. USC's faculty includes some of the nation's leading sociologists in the study of culture, demography, gender, immigration, labor, race/ethnicity, and religion, who have won numerous awards and honors.

We provide students with a solid grounding in qualitative and quantitative research methods and sociological theory. The unparalleled diversity of the Southern California region is reflected in the department's faculty, students, and research. Our departmental strengths are enhanced through research and teaching partnerships with interdisciplinary USC programs and research centers, including the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration, the Spatial Sciences Institute, and the Science, Technology, and Society initiative.
