Graduate Program

The mission of the PhD program is to train doctoral students to become effective scholars and practitioners in sociology by building: (a) a comprehensive understanding of sociological theory, statistics, methods and selected specialization areas; and (b) professional competency in sociological research, instruction, and engagement. We primarily specialize in training students in the following sociological areas:

Crime, Law, and Deviance :  Faculty in this area engage in sociologically informed research on crime-related issues, such as juvenile delinquency, international criminology, gun control, human trafficking, prisoner re-entry, recidivism, substance use, and violence against women. They serve in leadership roles in related professional organizations, including the American Sociological Society, the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, and the American Society of Criminology. Faculty working in this area are: Christopher Huggins , Tony Love ,  Carrie Oser , Claire M. Renzetti , and Janet Stamatel .

Environment and Society : Scholars in this area focus on the relationship between social systems and the ecosphere, with a focus on anthropogenic causes of environmental change, the social construction of environmental problems, and social movements related to environmental justice. Our department has a particular strength in research and service to rural and natural resource-dependent communities, especially agricultural, forested, and mining (post-mining) communities in Kentucky and Appalachia. Faculty working in this area are: Patrick Mooney , Shaunna Scott , Keiko Tanaka , and  Julie N. Zimmerman .

Health and Medical Sociology : Faculty in health and medical sociology conduct research on health disparities, medicalization, stigma, stress processes, HIV risk behaviors and intervention, and substance abuse. They serve in leadership roles in the American Sociological Association's sections on Disability and Society, Mental Health, Aging and the Life Course, and Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco. Our program offers a number of courses in this area, including the social determinants of health, gender and mental health, illness and disability, and dependency behavior. Faculty working in this area are: Anthony R. Bardo , Robyn Brown , Ana S. Q. Liberato , Mairead Eastin Moloney , and  Carrie Oser .

Social Inequalities :  All our faculty conduct research on some area of inequality. We examine disparities related to race, social class, gender, sexuality and disability in institutions such as healthcare, criminal justice, family, and education. The department has a long tradition of research on inequalities of geographic location and the environment, especially among rural populations. Faculty working in this area are:  Anthony R. Bardo ,  Robyn Brown , Jordan Brown ,  Christopher Huggins , Thomas Janoski ,  Ana S. Q. Liberato ,  Tony Love ,  Mairead Eastin Moloney ,  Patrick Mooney , Edward Morris ,  Carrie Oser ,  Claire M. Renzetti ,  Shaunna Scott ,  Janet Stamatel ,  Keiko Tanaka , Mohammad Zannoun , and  Julie N. Zimmerman .

Our students are actively engaged in research projects with faculty from the Department of Sociology, as well as others in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Agriculture, Education, and Medicine. They publish frequently in high-quality journals, present at national and international conferences, work in applied research fields, and teach a broad range of sociology courses. Our students have been very successful on both the academic and non-academic job markets.

Program Information

Sociology students learn how to address these issues through scientific research and application, and, as our world continuously evolves. Sociology majors are well prepared to offer insight into these changes and how best to accommodate them.  Sociology majors are offered a rich environment within which to develop skills in critical thinking, analytic problem-solving, and communication that are required by employers and/or that prepare them for a range of graduate programs.

Given the training in research methods, statistics, and topical areas, employment opportunities for sociology majors are plentiful in social service agencies; federal, state, and local governments; nonprofit organizations; and private enterprises. The emerging global economic order and the increased complexity of corporate cultures promise to open even more opportunities for our graduates. Some sociology majors help companies develop global marketing strategies, and others work to enhance the culture and organization of corporations.

Sociology students pursue careers in a variety of fields: business, child welfare, computer industry, criminal justice, education (teaching, evaluation research, consultation, research), gerontology, health care, international relations, law, law enforcement, leisure/recreation/sport, military/military intelligence, social work, and urban planning or management, and more.

Completion of this degree requires work to be submitted for the department’s Learning Outcomes Measurement. For details, contact the department.

Degree Summary

Some credit hours from the General Education Requirements may be satisfied by courses defined by the program, in which case additional electives will be required to complete the minimum hours for the degree. See the Degree Requirements tab for specific coursework.
