The department offers majors in sociology and in social work as well as five
different minors designed to meet the needs of Hood students pursuing majors in
fields outside the department. We offer minors in sociology, social work
(pre-professional practice), social science research, criminology and
delinquency, and gerontology. We also contribute many of the courses that
comprise the women’s studies minor and offer courses in anthropology.
Sociology and Social Work Department is located on the 3rd Floor of Alumnae
Hall (or “AD”), the building that houses the central administration offices on
campus. Department facilities include a library collection, the Center for
Social Science Research, faculty offices, classrooms and a computer lab.
