I’m Keri Diggins, a full-time residential Sociology faculty member here at SCC. I teach the required and optional Sociology courses for the Associate in Arts (AA), Emphasis in Sociology degree.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology in 1995 (with a minor in Deviance and Social Control) from Framingham State College, now Framingham State University. I earned my Master's Degree in Sociology from Boston College in 1998. My Master's Thesis title was “The Testimony of Worcester’s ‘Knowledgeable Insiders’: Gang Life Seen From the Inside.”
I began my college teaching career in 1998, but started teaching at SCC in 2004. Prior to becoming an Artichoke, I taught at Eastern Connecticut State University, Central Connecticut State University, Framingham State College, Worcester State College, Naugatuck Valley Community Technical College, Quinsigamond Community College, and the University of Hartford.
I am originally from Massachusetts. I am a die-hard New England sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox. In fact, my dog's name is Fenway.
