The discipline that cuts across all the others

Class. Status. Power. Gender. Race. Ethnic relations. Politics. Crime. Religion. Medicine. Education. Culture.

With a sociology major or minor, all of these topics (and more) come under investigation.

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.

We offer:

  • A supportive, friendly learning environment.
  • A very low student-to-faculty ratio, facilitating close relationships with professors.
  • A program highly respected by employers and elite graduate programs.
  • Chances to bond outside the classroom through gatherings at professors' homes, trips to conferences, and campus activities.

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.
