This essay argues the value of placing curriculum development in the context of a specific departmental mission statement, reflecting the shared sociological goals of faculty and students. A case analysis of one department's experience is offered, including the process by which consensus was reached on the sociological mission of the department, the resulting mission statement, and the mission statement's curricular and program implications.
