Sociology at UALR

The UALR Sociology Program offers courses designed to teach students to analyze and understand basic sociocultural processes, statuses, and roles; prepare students for careers and graduate study in the various fields and sub-fields of sociology; and contribute to the liberal arts training and knowledge of all undergraduates.

Sociology majors may also simultaneously pursue teaching licensure that allows them to teach social studies in Arkansas for grades 7-12.

Our department faculty are involved in many other activities on campus and beyond.  For example, Dr. Robert Sanderson is Associate Director of the Sequoyah National Research Center.  Our department consists of professional educators representing a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and experiences. We have faculty from all over the world. This diversity makes for a dynamic educational experience.
