WEC Unit: Sociology

The Department of Sociology is composed of 30 faculty members, 60 TAs, and more than 500 undergraduate majors. As a field, sociology is defined not by particular topics or locations of study, but by its ways of asking and answering questions about the relationship between people and their social environment. The department began its engagement  in the WEC process in 2013 with the goal of creating a more cohesive writing program to develop students' analytic writing abilities across the wide range of class topics, levels of abstraction and types of data that they encounter in the major. The departmental goal is for students to excel in the classroom, to build these skills into their own writing project for senior thesis papers, and into their future lives.
