Research

We view research as not only an important tool of discovery, but as an essential method of teaching. Our undergraduate students learn about sociological research at every stage of their education, both inside and outside of the classroom. Undergraduate students are also important collaborators on our research, participating in a wide range of different projects.

Sociology faculty members at William & Mary are active researchers. We are making important contributions to knowledge in many areas of the discipline, with current projects focusing on key social issues. Our research areas can be broadly categorized:

Globalization
Health, Medicine & Well-Being
Criminology, Law & Society

Social Problems, Policy & Justice

You can support student research and faculty/student collaborations.
