The Sociology department at the University of Nebraska at Omaha draws from the research and teaching expertise of 12 full-time faculty with international, multi-cultural, and comparative emphasis. They have interests in family, health, social organization, and social inequality.
Sociology is the scientific study of human relationships. Sociologists seek to understand the ways that often unseen social forces shape our lives.
Sociologists have broad interests ranging from families, racial and ethnic identity, organizations, social inequality, sex and gender, sexuality, the welfare system, education reform, human rights, to peace and war.
Sociology has a distinct perspective on social inequality, patterns of behavior, forces for social change and resistance, and how social systems work.
