Program Overview

“[The sociological imagination] is a quality of mind that seems most dramatically to promise an understanding of the intimate realities of ourselves in connection with larger social realities.”  (C. Wright Mills)

Sociology at Bard provides students with an understanding of the structures and processes of human society -- from everyday interactions with friends, co-workers, and family members to macro-level processes of global magnitude. The Sociology curriculum offers a theoretical and methodological foundation for examining social, cultural, and political forces and analyzing how they shape people’s behavior, interpretations, social status, and well-being. Through exposure to a wide array of quantitative, qualitative, and historical research, Sociology students learn to study the social world in a way that is both rigorous and flexible.

Faculty research and teaching areas include: social inequality; gender & sexuality; immigration; sociology of law; politics & social movements; the state; deviance, crime, & punishment; urban sociology; environment & society; globalization; family; demography; historical sociology; social theory; and research methods.
