Mission Statement

The UCF Department of Sociology provides the type of advanced learning community required to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We seek to educate global citizens who can access, evaluate, and analyze abundant information available through both electronic and more traditional forms of media. In addition, our department strives to foster tolerance and understanding of diverse peoples, cultures, and issues. Through research, teaching, and service, our faculty contributes to essential knowledge of social processes and informs policy decisions at the local, regional, and global levels.
