Developing an understanding of social issues in cross-cultural societies helps encourage and develop an understanding of the forces that serve to shape modern society. In an educational setting, such as through a Master of Arts program, this is achieved by applying practical advanced training in sociology through statistics, research methods, and evaluation.

What is an MA in Sociology? The Master of Arts (MA) in Sociology program prepares students in the broad skills typically utilized by contemporary sociologists. The goal is to provide students with advanced training beyond the undergraduate level for success in a number of professions as applied social scientists. Upon graduation, students have the capacity to critically address criminology issues using appropriate social science tools.

Graduates with a sociology MA are equipped with the necessary education and experience to engage in building sustainable, equitable, and positively centered human social environments. The applied focus integrates coursework with research approaches while emphasizing strengths in criminal justice, immigration research, and medical sociology.

Tuition fees and costs vary from institute to institute. For this reason, students intending to pursue a graduate sociology program should research the options available, paying particular attention to curricula that align with their individual and professional aims. Tuition and fees for online versus on-campus programs differ, as do costs for programs from institutions in various countries.  

Overall, the sociology MA program provides a solid foundation in criminology, urban sociology, and social inequality. In addition, it prepares students for a variety of careers in research, human services, community programs, social advocacy, government administrative jobs, and policymaking in the private and public sectors. Particular professions include instructors, policy analysts, researchers, and service providers in health care, criminal justice agencies, and social services departments throughout the world.

Programs are available worldwide, and international students are encouraged to apply. Typical program lengths average about two years for full-time students, although part-time options are also available. Completion of an MA program in Sociology provides a solid foundation for exceptional professional expertise and equips students with abilities that are essential for analyzing social matters in practical environments.
