Welcome New Graduate Students!


Presenting the 2017 cohort of graduate students in sociology/criminology at Penn State University!  The 2017 cohort includes 11 Sociology and 6 criminology students from a wide variety of backgrounds and interests, including the sociology of religion, immigrant families, neighborhood effects on health, and incarceration and its impacts on society.  The group even includes several cooking, hiking, and science fiction enthusiasts!  We are looking forward to getting to know this group better and eagerly anticipate their contributions in the near future as rising new scholars.
