Professional Associations

The American Sociological Association (ASA) is the national organization for sociologists. Its main function revolves around advancing sociology as a scientific discipline and profession, as well as promoting the uses and contributions of sociology for society. Towards this end, articulating policy and implementing programs are given high priority by the Association.

Here at Cal State LA, both faculty and students have been very active in the ASA over the years. Many have not only attended the annual meetings but have also delivered papers and participated in roundtable discussions of various topics. In fact, the Department has received national recognition for the number of students it has sent to the meetings. Again, this is an excellent opportunity for students to become involved with faculty mentors who can guide them throughout the research process. It should be noted that many of these students who have become involved with the ASA have gone on to further graduate study, and most have been very successful.

Students who are interested in either presenting a paper or at least attending the sociology conferences should contact Dr. Gretchen Peterson.
