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.

The 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.
