Welcome to the Department of Sociology at the University of New Mexico!
The interests of our faculty are wide ranging, from macrosocial comparative studies of globalization in different countries to qualitative research about gender and race interactions in schools to studies of crime patterns in urban neighborhoods.
The Sociology graduate program at The University of New Mexico benefits from a small student-to-faculty ratio and rigorous training in methods and statistics as well as diverse theoretical approaches. We are able to fund most of our graduate students, either through funded research, graduate fellowships, or teaching fellowships. Our former graduate students are found in tenure-track teaching jobs, government agencies, and research institutes around the world. Our department is affiliated with several campus research institutes, notably the Institute for Social Research (ISR), the Robert Wood Johnson Center for Health Policy Research (RWJ Center), the Latin American and Iberian Institute (LAII), and the Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse and Addictions (CASAA). These affiliations provide funded research opportunities for graduate students and faculty alike.We are located in Albuquerque, one of the most enjoyable cities in the Southwest, with stunning natural landscapes and rich cultural heritages. We’d love to meet you in person!
