Making a difference in people's lives

Department of Sociology at UCCS

The UCCS Sociology Department studies social life and broader global social structures.

About the Department

The UCCS Sociology department is guided by a vision of social justice. We provide methodological and theoretical frameworks to transcend individual experience to understand social life.

We study the broader social structures that are shaped by diverse social identities, systems of stratification, and culture, all in a global context, to advance equitable and just social change.
