The University is committed to building a culturally diverse educational environment; the ability to develop knowledge of, respect for, and skills to engage with those of other cultures or backgrounds is required. The sociology program focuses on public sociology and community-engaged teaching and research. The program seeks candidates whose teaching incorporates inclusive pedagogical practices, and encourages students to apply their sociological knowledge to public affairs and community programs, and whose research interests hold the potential to engage public audiences.
We seek candidates with scholarly interests that support teaching social deviance and juvenile delinquency courses. In addition, we are interested in candidates who can teach race and ethnicity, and are able to support one of the required courses for the major. All professors must be willing to teach general education, introductory sociology courses (social problems or introduction to society). Sociology & Anthropology
