Historical note

Although courses in sociology were being taught at Rice as far back as 1924, the sociology department did not become an autonomous unit at the university until 1971, when it split from the previous Department of Anthropology and Sociology, established ten years earlier. The department, though beginning with only four professors, grew to offer 15-20 courses in 2004, as well as many opportunities for research and publication.


Scope and Contents

These papers include research files, course materials, selected student papers, and documents related to the daily and annual business of the sociology department, including financial reports, departmental memos, faculty evaluations, and correspondence.
