Kathleen McKinley, PhD

Chair and Professor, Sociology

Kathleen McKinley, PhD, joined the Cabrini faculty in 1973.

During her years at Cabrini, McKinley says sociology has proven to be a subject that generates much student interest. She believes an effective method of learning is connecting topics discussed in the classroom to personal experiences.

Students are attracted to the themes dissected in her courses because they can connect the core topics of sociology with current events and issues facing society today.

McKinley earned a BA from Immaculata College, and an MA and PhD from the University of Pennsylvania.
