We are a vibrant intellectual community with three undergraduate majors (Sociology, Health and Human Sciences, and NGOs and Social Change) and two PhD programs (Sociology and the multidisciplinary Population, Health, and Place). Many affiliated research centers are led by our faculty.

Our faculty are experts in many fields, and we produce research for scholarly, policy, and public audiences. Our location in Los Angeles means that issues like immigration, inequality, homelessness, politics, and climate change inform our research and teaching. We also look across the U.S. and around the world to investigate global trends and issues.

We invite you to learn more about our faculty and graduate students. To keep up with our events and news, please join our mailing list!
