From job interviews to first dates to diplomatic meetings, social interactions shape people's lives.  At the Department of Sociology at the University of Maryland, we study the micro and macro, from family organization to globalization, to better understand how society functions.



As of Fall 2016, the Department of Sociology has 30 full-time faculty members and a number of affiliated faculty.
