Why Study Here?

The SMU Department of Sociology prepares students to meet the demand for a well-trained and globally-minded workforce.

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.
