The Department of Sociology at the University of Central Florida includes 22 faculty members with interests in crime and deviance, domestic violence, race and ethnicity, homelessness, gender, health, aging, social psychology, religion, environmental sociology, and substance use.

A hallmark of our undergraduate program is that all of our students conduct their own research under the supervision of a faculty mentor. This process allows students to sharpen their analytical abilities and develop skills that will help them gain admittance and be successful in graduate school. Given the sociology programs focus on developing research skills, many of our students participate in programs offered by the Office of Undergraduate Research at UCF and also present their research at academic conferences. At a large university like UCF, research provides students with a unique and more intimate learning environment.
