PhD Student Handbook

The student handbook for the interdisciplinary PhD Program in Sociology and Social Work* will serve as a guide as you embark on this phase of your academic achievement. In it, you will find most of the information that you will need to get started, such as course and faculty information, and requirements for the critical essay, qualifying exam, and dissertation. Please do not hesitate to consult with your faculty advisor or staff if you have questions or concerns. We are committed to offering you the best possible learning environment and doctoral experience. We encourage you to get to know us, to ask questions, and to get involved with the Boston University community.

We wish you the best as you embark on your journey!
