There are also elective courses in health and illness, race and ethnicity, marriage and family, and the sociology of religion. UNT's sociology faculty are well recognized in their field and involved in international research in countries like Ghana, Guatemala, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico and Sweden.
