The faculty of the Sociology Department is composed of more than 25 full time members, many of whom are also part of the Population Studies Center. The Department also has a number of affiliated faculty from the Education, Medical, Nursing, Social Policy and Practice, and Wharton Schools; as well as associated faculty from other departments.
Our faculty is highly diversified and conducts research on central sociological issues of theoretical and empirical relevance. It maintains strong international connections, and each year welcomes students and visitors from a number of foreign countries. Currently, the department ranks among the top ten in the United States based on faculty research and productivity.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend and colleague,
Professor Charles L. Bosk.
In remembrance of "Chuck"
