Worcester State University
Sociology Department


At Worcester State College, the Sociology Department engages in public sociology.

Successfully cultivating the sociological imagination involves studying the social world with curiosity and a critical gaze, and learning a variety of techniques to analyze social life, social change and the social causes and consequences of behavior.  We strive to help our students develop insights about the workings of the social world and the influence of social structure.  Our goal involves not just understanding the world, but working to change it.  This involves helping students uncover root causes of social problems and refine their personal understanding of social responsibility and economic justice.  We embrace the goals of personal, community, and global citizenship.  Ultimately, we strive to provide guidance and teaching designed to help students live better lives in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

The Sociology Department is located on the second floor of the Sullivan Academic Center in room 218.
