Sociology students are social! We have opportunities for students to be a part of the department and wider community. What students learn about society outside the classroom is just as important as what they learn in class. We have a sociology club that organizes events, field trips, and other sociology-related activities. The club is open to any USI students interested in sociology.
For more information about the Sociology Club, contact Dr. Adam Sizemore or Dr. Andrew Buck.
Alpha Kappa Delta
We have established a chapter of the national honors society in sociology, Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD). Our AKD chapter is called “Omicron” and membership is eligible to sociology majors with an overall GPA of 3.3. Along with current students, our chapter has faculty, who joined when they were sociology students, as members. Membership in AKD offers a subscription to Sociological Inquiry, the official journal of AKD. It also has funds for travel to present at national and regional sociological conferences. The chapter engages in various sociology-related events and activities on campus.
