The Department of Sociology at GSU is one of the highest ranked (U.S. News & World Report) in the Southeast, we strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning, training and research.

Sociology students explore the ways in which individual experiences and communal events are linked to all the different forms of human behavior and social relationships.

Our programs help students develop an understanding of both everyday social behavior and the structural factors that contribute to social justices. Whether you are a major or minor, we are happy that you’ve decided to make our department your home on campus.
