The MA program in the Department of Sociology is a two-year graduate program designed to provide students an intellectually stimulating and vibrant academic environment to enhance their “sociological thinking” through graduate-level coursework and thesis-based research. Each year, we seek to admit a small number of interested, enthusiastic, and qualified students. Since our cohorts are small, students in our program benefit from close mentorship opportunities with supportive and interested faculty. Students also benefit from flexibility in course offerings and personal attention in designing a program aligned with their individual research interests. -
