Program Description

The Department of Sociology offers graduate work leading to a doctor of philosophy (PhD) and is intended for students seeking a professional career in research and teaching in both academic and non-academic settings.

The department does not offer a terminal master's degree, although students enrolled in the PhD program will also receive a master's degree as part of their training.

Students receive training in qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, sociological theory, and major substantive fields within sociology such as gender, sexuality, environment, race and ethnicity, culture, social networks, labor, immigration, and political economy.

The department places a strong emphasis on research and many students will find opportunities to participate in projects conducted by faculty members.
