Welcome from the Chair

Brian PowellWelcome to Indiana University’s Department of Sociology. Our department has a long-standing tradition of intellectual vitality, research excellence and commitment to training new generations of graduate and undergraduate students. In a discipline experiencing increasing specialization, we pride ourselves on a department where faculty and graduate student interests are diverse and span the breadth of the discipline. Substantive areas of specialization range from macro to micro and methodological expertise encompasses a wide range of methods from cutting edge quantitative models and experimental designs to qualitative studies using ethnographic and historical materials. We also value and nurture a strong spirit of community and collegiality that we see as central to the intellectual vitality of our department.

We have recently revamped our departmental website and plan to continue expanding information available on these pages. In the meantime, we welcome your visit to our department website and I encourage you to contact me if you have questions or information to share with our department.

Best wishes,
Brian Powell
