Berkey hall

Home to the College of Social Science and amazing research opportunities

Located on the northern boundary of campus, Berkey Hall is home to the College of Social Science, the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, and the Department of Sociology. Each have a rich tradition of research, high-quality teaching, and engagement programs and opportunities for students.  

Students in the College of Social Science can conduct their own research, engage in service-learning, take classes around the globe through education abroad and participate in internships. Some of these beyond-the-classroom experiences include urban immersion fellowships, scholar programs, internships within Michigan and Federal government offices, InnovateGov, social work programs in Flint, Michigan, and more.  

The Department of Sociology has substantial strengths in three signature areas: environment, health/medicine and migration. MSU sociologists conduct research across Michigan, the U.S. and the world, often collaborating with scholars, community members, policymakers, technical experts and activists.
