  • Welcome

    In order to more fully serve our students, exciting changes are occurring to the Department of Sociology and Archaeology during the Spring semester of 2015. During this semester, we are transitioning into two new departments: the Department of Sociology, and the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, which will come into full effect on July 1, 2015. The new webpage for Archaeology and Anthropology is where you will access information about our programs, faculty, staff, and world class facilities. Information about our Sociology program and the Criminal Justice minor remains on the current pages and links. The 2014-2015 catalog still contains the degree requirements and courses for both departments on one page for the time being, so scroll down for Sociology courses, which are listed alphanumerically. 

    The faculty and staff in the department of Sociology encourage you to peruse our website. Many areas of student questions, concerns and interests are addressed on this site. However, please feel free to come and see us if you have any questions regarding sociology, archaeology, anthropology or criminal justice. The Department of Sociology prides itself on providing students with opportunities to learn and work with faculty in pursuit of educational goals.

    The sociology major at UW-L provides students with the requisite research, theory and writing skills for the Bachelor's degree in sociology, while additionally offering the opportunity to take a wide selection of elective courses. Opportunities to engage in undergraduate research and explore career paths through internships and volunteer activities are readily available.

    We look forward to hearing from you and having the chance to work together in exploring the diverse fields of criminal justice, and sociology. 

    Do you have questions about how to declare a sociology major or minor? Wonder who your advisor is? Want to know how to appeal a course grade? Check out the department's  advising site. If you have additional questions about the Department of Sociology at UW-L, please contact:
