When you study sociology at Franklin & Marshall, you discover the many interrelationships among the various fields of knowledge that constitute the liberal arts. Any question that has to do with people has a sociological answer.
Each year, students in the program have unmatched opportunities to collaborate individually with faculty on meaningful research projects, or to engage in their own studies with faculty guidance. Students have presented the results of their work at professional conferences, and in co-authored articles in leading professional journals.
Our alumni enter a wide range of fields, from the human services to education, law, public health, medicine, business, and social research, and we are proud of the success they have experienced.
