Berkeley Undergraduate Sociology Association (B.U.S.A)

The Berkeley Undergraduate Sociology Association is an organization for students interested in Sociology. The group primarily consists of undergraduate students, majors and pre-majors in sociology, although the group invites all students to participate in its activities. 

In the past, B.U.S.A. has focused its efforts on both educational activities related to the field of Sociology and social get-togethers. The purpose of the group is to provide opportunities for Sociology students to meet with each other and the faculty on an informal basis, and to provide additional learning opportunities related to sociology. Some of the activities in past years have included: Brown Bag Lunches with individual faculty and visiting lecturers, a pizza party, career seminars, an Alumni Night, and a spring reception. 

There is usually a core group of students who get involved in the various committees, leadership, and planning of the group’s activities. If you are interested, see an Undergraduate Advisor or attend one of the meetings. Feel free to attend the various functions sponsored by B.U.S.A. as they interest you. Announcements regarding meetings and activities are usually made in most of the Sociology classes and via the Sociology Major Email list, or you may get information from the Sociology Undergraduate Advisors.
