Welcome to Dartmouth! This overview covers what sociology is, and a little about our department, the sociology major, and good classes for first-year students. Our faculty teach and do research on the most pressing issues of our time, including racial justice and inequality, residential segregation, health disparities, education, work-family balance, globalization, democratization, and more. You can find out more about their work here.

Sociology examines the social relations that shape individual behavior, how we connect with one another, and how individuals and groups make meaningful social change.
