ASA also has useful teaching & learning resources for graduate students and undergraduates
"Education is healthy when people themselves are in a healthy state; but it becomes corrupt with them, being unable to modify itself... Education, therefore, can be reformed only if society itself is reformed. To do that, the evil from which it suffers must be attacked at its source."
The ASA Theory section welcomes participation from students at the undergraduate and graduate level interested in the role, use, and value of sociological theory. ASA student membership is relatively cheap and comes with many benefits.
The benefits of joining ASA sections in your interest areas relate to the value of sociological specialties. As sociologists develop their interests in different ways, they pursue diverse specialty subjects within the field as a whole. Sections are also represented at the annual meeting.
