The Sociology Program is administered by the Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB). Sociology students are taught about major social issues of the day, and how to better understand why they have occurred.


Sociology is the systematic study of human society and social interaction. It helps us gain a grasp of why people behave in certain ways and how societies develop.

Sociologists use both theoretical perspectives and research methods to make sense of why humans behave the way we do. Sociologists examine social structures, such as social groups. 

They study human groups and how those groups affect the ways we interact with both members of our group and others from different groups. They also study the role of socialization in the development of our self-identities. Furthermore, they analyze the impact of social institutions on our everyday lives, such as the family, schools, media, and peer groups.

The Sociology faculty at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff are committed to your success as one of our students. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and with diverse professional training. They are dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge through scholarly research and committed to the goal of academic excellence within the classroom.
