The graduate program in Sociology enables students to study sociological principles, ways of knowing, and sociological findings in areas of current interest and commitment. Training at the master’s level in sociology is applicable to employment in such areas as law enforcement, corrections services, urban planning, public and private administration, marketing, health and welfare services, youth services, community organizations, and education. The M.A. in Sociology can serve as preparation for entry into Ph.D. programs and professional training.
A limited number of assistantships and tuition remission scholarships are available to graduate students. Additional information is available upon written or e-mail request to the chair or graduate program director of the Department of Sociology.
