College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Edinboro's Department of Sociology prepares students to work in a variety of professional settings including local, state, regional and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations and for-profit enterprises. Our programs also prepare students for success in graduate school in a variety of areas including research, social policy, law, counseling and other practice-oriented fields.
The Department of Sociology is passionate about social, economic and environmental justice, it seeks to inspire participatory democracy and civic engagement, and is committed to empowering students to act as agents of change in their own local communities and beyond.
We engage students in experiential learning inside and outside of the classroom. Faculty engage in one-on-one mentorship to design research opportunities and internship experiences derived from students’ academic interests and career goals.
