Pitt sociologists focus their research in our two areas of specialization: Social Movements and Politics & Culture.
We study the variety of organizing principles that structure opportunities and constraints unequally.
A Collaborative Experience
Students and faculty regularly conduct and co-publish research in highly-ranked journals.
Who We Are
The University of Pittsburgh Department of Sociology in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences has particular strengths in the studies of Social Movements and Politics & Culture and shares with the University of Pittsburgh a strong international and comparative orientation.
