The Discipline that Intersects All Others 

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

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 very low student-to-faculty ratio, facilitating close relationships with professors.
  • A program highly respected by employers and elite graduate programs.
  • A supportive, friendly learning environment.
  • Opportunities to connect outside the classroom through trips to conferences, gatherings at professors' homes, 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 human services to education, law, public health, medicine, business, and social research. We are proud of the success they have experienced.
