Department of Sociology
Beverly L. Stiles, Ph.D., Chair
Sociology faculty members at MSU are noted for being student-oriented. We are readily accessible and have an open-door policy. Interested students often have the opportunity to engage in research projects with faculty members. Many of our students have won regional and national awards for their papers and have been published in scholarly journals. In the last academic year, our number of majors has doubled.
The sociology program also has a very active service-oriented student organization, the Assocication for Social and Behavioral Sciences. Members spend time at Boys and Girls Clubs, The Teen Shelter, and raise money for charitable causes.
We also have a chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta, the international honor society for sociology majors and minors.
Internships are available for sociology majors to give students exposure to the types of community agencies in which they may later seek employment. Please talk to Dr. LaBeff for more information on internships.
