The sociology program at UTSA includes diverse scholars who are engaged in cutting edge social research academy. The core of our program is highlighted by an emphasis on methodological rigor, both quantitative and qualitative. We also strive to achieve a balance between theoretical concerns that ground our discipline and empirical research that sheds light on the genuine, everyday experiences of real people in the real world.
In the last fifty years, we have witnessed important social changes that have changed our society. Those changes include an increased need in institutions, agencies, firms and corporations for a highly qualified work force, flexible enough to change gears with the shifting times. We believe that sociology is a discipline that assists the individual to better participate, guide and predict the various and changing groups in our society. A degree in Sociology opens to a large and diversified list of job opportunities.
