Professors Mentor You, Explore Groundbreaking Research

Faculty members in our Sociology Department are chosen for their proven commitment to mentoring IUP students. Our professors also find the time to pursue publishing and independent research projects that impact the sociology community.

  • Our professors are drawn to IUP in part because the Sociology Department includes advanced studies, which attracts the best students, like you.
  • Excellent mentoring goes beyond classroom requirements. Your professors have the experience to guide you to your highest professional goals.
  • Faculty members take great care in exploring and analyzing what is most appropriate for your undergraduate studies.
  • Your interaction with master's and doctoral students expands your grasp of what is available to you as you plan for a career based on sociology. This interaction often occurs outside the classroom since our full-time professors teach all classes.
