In the Department of Education Policy & Social Analysis

Welcome to the Program in Sociology and Education

Sociology was the first social science discipline to develop a basic framework for the study of education, complementing long-established perspectives rooted in psychology and philosophy.  Sociology is both solidly theoretical and highly relevant to policy and practice in education. The sociological study of education began at Teachers College in the first decade of the twentieth century.  Since then, our Sociology and Education Program has educated aspiring researchers, policy makers, school leaders, and teachers to use sociological theories and research findings as they analyze educational problems and seek to have an impact in solving those problems.
