Get Involved with Sociology

The sociology department has many opportunities for you to get involved in the field before you graduate. Joining a student organization helps you gain insight into your field, make connections and meet new people. Get involved in sociology today.

Required Sociology Internship

As a sociology major, you're required to participate in a semester-long internship in your field. You're graded on daily journal entries throughout the internship and a final portfolio. Find an internship that interests you then visit your advisor to get it approved.

Join the Sociology Club

The Sociology Club was created by the sociology students as a place where they meet and discuss issues, both of an academic nature, and a societal nature. All sociology students have in common a desire to make a difference in their community. We work well with our local neighbors in the Rosedale and PolyHeights communities. 

We want to encourage students to take civic responsibility by becoming more informed about their community. One of our projects is the on-campus Food Pantry, run by, and for students.

Join Pi Gamma Mu

Pi Gamma Mu is a national honor society for social sciences. Membership is limited to only students in the School of Natural & Social Science who meet the membership requirements. Visit the RamSpace website to learn more about Pi Gamma Mu.


Food Pantry

Though basically housed within sociology, the Food Pantry is run by students. We can only open when students volunteer, so please think about giving an hour or sop of your time each week on a regular basis. This would help immensely. The Food Pantry is located in PUMC.
