The Master of Arts in Sociology program prepares students broadly in the basic skills used by a sociologist. Our goal is to provide advanced training beyond the undergraduate level for work as an applied social scientist outside of academic life, as in government administrative jobs or research departments or community programs. The program requirements include coursework and an MA thesis that makes an original contribution to sociological knowledge. Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree in any discipline; a bachelor’s degree in sociology is preferable but not required.
