Sociology at the University of Georgia

Sociology faculty at the University of Georgia are excellent teachers and productive scholars, who have won the University's highest teaching and research awards, received major grants, and published their research in the top journals and presses. We embrace a variety of research methodologies, including ethnography, experiments, and secondary data analysis. This research is both interdisciplinary and collaborative: many of our faculty are affiliated with other units on campus and work closely with graduate students.
