Welcome!


The department of sociology focuses exclusively on undergraduate education and providing students with a variety of rich opportunities to meet their academic goals. The department offers a B.A. and B.S. in Sociology as well as an interdisciplinary B.A. in Markets and Culture. The faculty maintains active research agendas, offers award winning and innovative classes, and fully engages with the university community. We encourage and support every major to complete at least one academic experience outside the classroom and as a result our majors are recognized for their academic, athletic, and community service achievements while at SMU. Our alumni network is strong and committed to helping current majors transition from school to work.
