Concentrations Offered in Sociology Programs, AY 2000/01 & 2006/07


While most sociology departments and programs do not offer specialties or concentrations, according to the survey, the proportion offering them has increased from 39 percent in AY 2000/01 to 43 percent in AY 2006/07. This small increase suggests there is no rush to specialize within sociology departments, especially those with few faculty and majors.
