The Department of Sociology at The Catholic University of America is dedicated to the study of human social activity – thinking systematically and critically about society. Our faculty publish in fields ranging from family and immigration to criminology, gender, and ethnicity.

While our critical approaches vary widely, we share a love of sociology research and a dual commitment to scholarship and teaching.

The CUA Department of Sociology grants the M.A. in Sociology, offering three areas focused on social justice:

  1. Crime and justice studies
  2. Global and comparative processes
  3. Public policy analysis
