Welcome to the Department of Sociology

The Department of Sociology at UB is a vibrant and stimulating intellectual home for undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty alike. Our faculty and students conduct high-impact research and we are proud of the quality of our instruction—in fact, five faculty members have been honored as SUNY Chancellor’s Excellence in Teaching Award recipients. This year, we are especially excited to announce the launch of the new BA/MA in Applied Social Research, featuring graduate training and high-demand research skills for public and private sector careers. Whether sociology students study in Buffalo, Singapore or London, the Department’s high quality undergraduate and graduate programs and study abroad opportunities prepare graduates for success in our rapidly changing globalized world.
