Sociology

Sociology at Wesleyan explores life as it is lived in and through institutional structures and dynamic social formations—from the intimate, micro-interactions of everyday life to macro-dynamics of global power.  The faculty of the Sociology Department offers courses in a variety of fields including social theory, social movement, critical media studies, sexualities, family, gender, race & ethnicity, education, inequality, globalization, economy & development, work, leisure, healthcare, urban sociology, religious movements, philanthropy, political sociology, and sociological methods of analysis.
