There are two degree programs in Sociology offered at the University of Rhode Island:
The URI Department of Sociology is a member of the Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) International Sociology Honor Society.
Such questions are central to liberal education, and the minor draws on the perspectives of a wide number of traditional academic disciplines as well as several newly emerging fields of study. Although beneficial for all students, the minor is particularly recommended for those contemplating careers in the law, criminal justice, education, and human services.
