College of Liberal and Fine Arts

Chair’s Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Sociology. At present the sociology department offers a B.A. and M.S. in Sociology, and a concentration in Public Health with an emphasis in Epidemiology.

The Master's program is quite active with over 120 students currently in residence and the number of 
undergraduate majors growing at a steady pace. The department has an Honor Society chapter, Alpha 
Kappa Delta (AKD) that offers students the opportunity to be acknowledged for excellent academic 
performance. AKD members are very active on campus scholarly events as well with activities in the San 
Antonio community.

Sociology students have access to a survey lab, and a secure data lab, and both are equipped with the 
latest software. The secure data lab ensures that our faculty can work with students to provide them access 
and to train students to work with major, national data sets which are of sensitive nature.

The department invites you to stop by and tour our facilities, and meet our faculty, staff and students!
