"The Sociology Department at William and Mary was founded in the early 1940s. Today, at any given time we have around 100 majors and each year between 40 and 50 seniors graduate with a degree in Sociology. Many other students take Sociology courses to inform their majors or to explore interests in some of the critical questions of our day. The social consequences of our aging population, globalization, immigration, and segregation are only a few of the issues tackled in our department."[1]
