Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Maryland

Dr. Marsh’s general areas of expertise are the Black middle class, demography, racial residential segregation, and education. She has combined these interests to develop a research agenda that is divided into two broad areas: avenues into the Black middle class and consequences of being in the Black middle class. Currently, Dr. Marsh is writing a book for Cambridge University Press on the wealth, health, residential choices and dating practices of an emerging Black middle class that is single and living alone. Professor Marsh also teaches courses on Research Methods, Race Relations and Racial Residential Segregation. She has been a visiting scholar at the University of Southern California, University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa
