The Department of Sociology has done innovative, often pathbreaking work in the discipline, and their engaged scholarship has influenced the formation of significant movements and policies for democratic change. Its founding traditions of European theorizing and "Chicago School" field studies have been continually enriched with feminist and other critical theoretical approaches, as well as through comparative institutional analyses in a globalizing world. While the department offers a range of methods, including historical, quantitative and comparative, the program has specialized in qualitative analysis. In addition to theory and methods, the department currently focuses especially on three substantive areas: Gender and Feminist Studies, Sociology of Health and Illness, and Politics and Social Change.
