Meet Our Faculty

Our faculty come from top graduate programs, having trained at Northeastern, Brandeis, Clark and Brown University. They also have extensive "hands-on" experience, having worked in criminal justice, politics and government, and research and program evaluation before coming to Emmanuel. This combination of high-level academic training and experience outside of academia allows students to see the many paths they can take with a degree in sociology.
