The UCSB Sociology Department supports Sociologists for Women in Society. Our highly ranked department is among the most diverse nationwide in terms of both professors and students. Our faculty includes internationally renowned scholars whose research and teaching have influenced intellectual developments that have changed the landscape of the discipline, including in the study of gender and sexualities, intersectional analysis of social phenomena, social movements as drivers of social and political change, and the “cultural turn” in Sociology. In 2022, the US News and World Report Guide to Graduate Departments ranked USCB Sociology 3rd nationwide in the subfield of Sex and Gender, and 10th in Sociology of Culture. Our other core areas of long-standing strength include Race, Ethnicity, and Nation; Global Sociology; and Conversation Analysis; and we are building specializations in Immigration and Demography; Environmental Sociology; Health and Medicine; and Justice, Law and Human Rights. Many of our faculty and graduates of our program model interdisciplinarity, social justice, and public-facing scholarship through their work. And we also have many faculty and graduate students active in SWS.
