The NYU Sociology Department has three goals: to produce reliable new knowledge about human behavioral and social processes; to train graduate students to produce new knowledge; and to disseminate sociological knowledge to all, providing an appreciation for how such knowledge is obtained and how such knowledge can benefit everyone. To advance knowledge, we draw on a wide range of approaches – basic and applied, theoretical and empirical, deductive and inductive, micro and macro, quantitative and qualitative – striving to continuously break new ground. Our PhD, MA-AQR, and undergraduate programs prepare students for many callings, from research and teaching to health, law, and public service, providing intellectual support and inspiring them to innovate.
