Sociology Faculty Research

 
Sociology has a long history at The University of Akron. Our Department began offering undergraduate degrees in 1934 when we separated from the Department of Economics. An M.A. degree was approved in 1963, with our first master’s degree awarded in 1966. In 1973, we received approval for a joint Ph.D. program between The University of Akron and Kent State University. Our first doctoral degrees were awarded in 1979.
