WELCOME to the Department of Sociology at Florida State University! Our faculty and students are engaged in fascinating studies of the social inequalities that define our times, as seen in relationships, health outcomes, educational and professional careers, and interactions. We are also committed to sharing sociology with non-academic audiences, because our discipline provides unique insights that can improve policy responses and inform collective action. We invite you to read more about our department's history, current research, opportunities for enriched studies, accomplished alumni, and rigorous graduate programs. -Kathi Tillman, Chair
