Faculty are at the heart of the discipline of sociology. ASA offers resources and programs to support pedagogical and career success for faculty and teachers at all stages of their careers and at all types of institutions. Member benefits include:
One way to judge a discipline is by the strength of its curriculum. The ASA and its members have attended to this challenge for over two decades by providing guidelines for a robust undergraduate sociology major. The association’s newest recommendations can be found in The Sociology Major in the Changing Landscape of Higher Education: Curriculum, Careers and Online Learning (Pike, et al. 2017), which is available as a free PDF at www.asanet.org/sites/default/files/asa-booklet-2017.pdf.
As a current member, you are probably familiar with the many direct member services we provide—free access to journals, Annual Meeting discounts, access to job listings, and teaching resources. You may not know as much about our public engagement efforts.
Membership not only benefits you directly, but also supports our broader efforts in advancing sociology as a science and profession and promoting the contributions and use of sociology to the wider public.
