Explore and Join Sociological Associations
Founded in 1930, the Eastern Sociological Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting excellence in sociological scholarship and instruction. The ESS sponsors a professional journal, a four-day annual meeting in the spring, a newsletter, numerous award competitions, an employment service, and a mailing list.
The American Sociological Association (ASA), founded in 1905, is a non-profit membership association dedicated to advancing sociology as a scientific discipline and profession serving the public good. As an undergraduate, you can join the The Honors Program, which provides undergraduate sociology students a rich introduction to the professional life of the discipline. Once admitted, these exceptional students come together for four days and experience all facets of the ASA Annual Meeting. By participating, Honors Program students develop long-lasting networks with other sociologists while their sponsoring departments get to "showcase" their most outstanding majors. Ask one of your Sociology Professors for assistance.
We are an interdisciplinary community of scholars, practitioners, advocates, and students interested in the application of critical, scientific, and humanistic perspectives to the study of vital social problems.
