The Department of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine is nationally recognized for its broad strengths, including quantitative and qualitative research in such areas as immigration, social movements, social networks, the family, and globalization. Sociology faculty contribute not only to the department and the wider field but also to the campus's interdisciplinary units, providing leadership and core faculty to the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences, the Center for the Study of Democracy, the Center for Demographic and Social Analysis, and so on. Faculty members in sociology have achieved preeminence in several sub-fields; they have gained distinction as editors of major journals and officers of professional associatons; and they have won respect in equal measures from activists and policymakers. The department offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in sociology.
