Graduate training in Sociology prioritizes community and policy-relevant research focused on improving people's daily lives and society more broadly. Students focus on the integrations of theory with a variety of quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches to study the dynamics of human behavior and social interaction in substantive areas including health and medical sociology, environmental sociology, education criminology, class/stratification, race/ethnicity, urban sociology, social movements, family, gender, and sexualities. The program aims to prepare graduates for research and service positions in government, the non-profit sector, private industry, and the academy.
If you're entering with a BA, or BS you have the option of applying for the MA, MS or Ph.D. programs. If you opt for the Ph.D. program, you will still need to complete a Master's degree.
