Welcome to Sociology at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. We are a part of New Jersey’s leading public university–one of the oldest and most well regarded institutions of higher education in the nation. Our department is located midway between New York City and Philadelphia, an area known throughout the country for its dynamism and diversity.
The Rutgers Sociology Department strives to create an environment that supports and affirms diversity in all manifestations, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, social class, disability status, region/country of origin, and political orientation. We also celebrate diversity of theoretical and methodological perspectives among our faculty and students and seek to create an atmosphere of respect and mutual dialogue.
