Department of Sociology

Welcome to the Department of Sociology at Tulane University. Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior.

Tulane Sociologists use a variety of theoretical approaches and research methods to investigate the structure and processes of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact within these various contexts.

Tulane Sociologists are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service. We provide undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional opportunities to learn valuable, life-long transferable skills in critical thinking, data collection, data analysis, and communicating research to a public audience.
