The Department of Sociology at the University of Georgia is devoted to the study of human social behavior in its many diverse and amazing forms. The undergraduate and graduate programs provide training in five specializations: Criminology, Deviance and Law; Culture; Race, Gender and Class; Social Psychology; and Work, Occupations and Organizations.


The Department of Dance offers a comprehensive dance curriculum with professional training in contemporary dance and ballet, and an emphasis on performance. Jazz, tap, and ballroom dance classes are also offered. Coursework in dance explores the technical, stylistic, historical, analytical, cultural and performative aspects of the art of dance, providing a strong foundation for students to explore, experiment and develop personal creativity and artistry.


The Department was originally formed in 1964 as the Department of Statistics and Computer Science and remained such until 1984. We have retained that strong emphasis on computing and maintain our own state-of-the-art computing network. In addition, we have maintained the three-fold mission of teaching, research, and service.
