Department Announcements

Tufts Sociology has moved!  This year, while our trusty Eaton Hall gets a major (and long-awaited) makeover, you can find us across the quad in our temporary offices on the third floor of Braker Hall. We look forward to seeing you in our new location. Come say hello!

An enthusiastic welcome to the Class of 2026! If you are interested in learning more about majoring or minoring in sociology, we encourage you to email or drop by to visit our Department Chair, Sarah Sobieraj (Office: Breaker 316). She loves meeting new students and can answer your questions, point you to students and faculty who share your interests, and/or tell you about ways to get involved.

The newly launched Sociology Student Advisory Board is looking for a first-year student to join their ranks! If you are a first year student who will be majoring in sociology and want to learn more, contact any of our student advisory board members!

Congratulations to Professor Freeden Blume Oeur, who was honored with the Distinguished Early Career Award by the American Sociological Association’s Section on Children and Youth. It is a pleasure to see his magnificent work recognized. For more details on the achievements of our talented faculty, please see the “department highlights” section.

This fall we are welcoming two new part time lecturers to our community; Utku Balaban and Julie LaBagnara. If you see new faces in the halls, be sure to say hello!
