The Department of Sociology at Boston University fosters teaching and research that expand knowledge of human social behavior.  By introducing students to the art and science of sociology, including its theories and methods, the Department contributes to the education of active, critically informed and globally-aware citizens, as well as to the training of the next generation of teachers, policy makers, and scholars.
