Faculty: Ronald Berger, Marvin Free, Gilbert Gloyer, Eugene Grigsby, Hadley Klug, Lawrence Neuman, Richard Salem, Patricia Searles (Chairperson), Darcie Vandegrift, Jennifer Wingren.
 
 

Sociology is the systematic study of human group behavior. It seeks to understand the processes by which people build, maintain, and change their relations with others. Sociology emerged in response to the problems and needs of industrial life. As society has grown in size and complexity so has the need for knowledge and skill in dealing with human relationships. Providing students with the intellectual tools appropriate to the study and understanding of the basic human condition is our central concern. Topics studied include marriage and family, crime and delinquency, gender, race and ethnic relations, social problems, social institutions and cross-cultural studies.
 
 

The Department of Sociology at UW-Whitewater offers courses covering a wide range of interests and specialties. The program is designed to give the student a better understanding of the significant factors and processes of modern life; to meet the needs of students preparing to teach in the social science field; to prepare students for graduate work in sociology; and to provide study useful for particular applied fields. Many students regard sociology as especially valuable preparation for careers in social work, teaching, law, and research and administration in government or corporations. Faculty work closely with students in developing programs and career plans and opportunities. They assist students in selecting an appropriate on-the-job practicum experience to make the transition to a professional job on graduation. Assistance extends to preparing for the job search and exploring the practical applications of sociology.
