Within UNF's Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work, the Sociology program seeks to provide its students with a sound comprehension of the field, and to encourage the development of new knowledge through faculty scholarship. Our educational aim at the undergraduate level is to facilitate mastery of theoretical, methodological, and empirical work in Sociology as a specialized field and as a component of a broader liberal arts education. Our commitment to research reflects broad interests and aspirations, as we aim to contribute both general and applied research on local, national, and global social issues. Finally, our faculty and students are committed to serving the diverse communities in which they live and work, including the University, the discipline, and the region.Our Department offers an undergraduate minor in Sociology and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology in which students select one of two concentrations: General Sociology and Social Welfare.
