The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the general study of sociologists as teachers. A sample of sociologists from graduate departments was asked to rank the professional activities of "research" and "teaching" in terms of the amount of time they typically commit to them. The findings are as follows: Most sociologists devote most of their time to teaching. Second, there is an inverse relationship between departmental prestige and the percentage of department members who commit most of their time to teaching.
