Who We Are

The California Sociological Association is composed of sociologists in a variety of settings – universities and colleges, government agencies, non-profits and private practitioners.   We hold an annual conference in November of each year and alternate between the south and the north of the state.  Our conference provides an opportunity for everyone including students to present their work and to talk informally with each other.

Mission Statement 

The mission of CSA is to promote the scientific study of society among interested persons within the state of California; to stimulate discussion and encourage cooperative relations among people engaged in the scientific study of society; and to further the aims of instruction, practice and research in the field of sociology.
