Sociology

One of the goals of Roosevelt’s sociology curriculum is to nurture a well-developed sociological imagination—"the quality of mind essential to grasp the interplay of individual and society, of biography and history, of self and the world" as C. Wright Mills termed it. The promise of a sociological imagination is to help students position their own lives in broader social contexts and to understand the dynamic relationship between the political, economic, and cultural forces that constitute social life.

The Sociology program at Roosevelt has seven full-time faculty members. It also includes several adjunct faculty members who hold degrees from a number of prestigious universities. For more information on the sociology program, please click on one of the links below.
