Public Sociology at George Mason

Home | Blog | Get Involved | Links | Projects | Visions


This page is devoted to providing students, scholars, activists, and proponents of Public Sociology with avenues to realize their passions for working with and for people in our community, as well other worldwide.   This privilege is a crucial component of Public Sociology. Public Sociology endeavors extend from the local to the global. After all, social ills are everywhere.

By getting involved with efforts such as those featured below, we are able to apply the knowledge we gain in the classroom and from research endeavors to real-world causes. Being able to contribute to the improvement of others’ lives, to community growth, to social justice, and to overall social health are some of the many benefits of being a public sociologist!
