          The Department of Sociology envisions a more equitable society built upon vibrant social relations, sustainable communities, and inclusive institutions guided by the principles of diversity, participatory democracy, civic engagemen, and social/ economic justice. We strive to inspire learners to use sociology to inform individual agency, enable professional opportunities, engage social change and create social good. We prepare adult learners with critical sociological imaginations, strong technical skills, and adaptable professional competencies to empower them to fully engage the challenges of 21st Century employment, civil society, and public and private life.

          The Sociology program at Edinboro University is a comprehensive and engaging degree program that develops skills such as research design, data collection and analysis, report writing, survey methods, interviewing techniques, group facilitation, strategic planning, policy analysis, community organizing, program evaluation and ethics in research and social and human services practice. Above all, with an emphasis on diversity and social justice, the program prepares students to transcend the boundaries of their formal education and engage the challenges of professional employment, civil/ civic society and public/ private life.
