Message from the Chair
Welcome to the Department of Sociology. Especially during tumultuous times, sociology plays a critical role in increasing public awareness about social, political, and cultural issues and contributing to social change.
I invite you to explore this website to learn how our faculty, staff, and students are making a difference. You will discover how a BS in Sociology or an MA in Applied Sociology prepares students for careers dedicated to making our communities more caring and inclusive places. I hope you will consider a degree in Sociology at NAU or supporting our students and faculty.
Jessie Finch, Ph.D.
Chair and Senior Lecturer, Department of Sociology
