Program list & descriptions
Sociology ( Masters )
Graduate studies in sociology are designed to emphasize the connections between core areas and to encourage students to develop competencies in more than one area. The MA program contains a core of theory and method designed to provide flexibility for students as well as to reflect the diversity that characterizes the discipline. Individual programs beyond the core are designed to fit students' interests and to supplement areas in which they may require additional work, insofar as faculty resources and specializations permit. The department offers two programs leading to the MA degree: thesis and non-thesis option. Normally, students will declare their intention to pursue one option by the end of April of their first year in the graduate program.

What is co-op?
Co-operative education (co-op) is a learning strategy that lets you:
- alternate your academic studies with paid, relevant work experience in your field of study
- enrich your academic studies by drawing on practical, real-world experience from your work terms
- develop competencies to excel in the workplace
- potentially pursue work terms related to your graduate research or project
Can you do co-op?
Graduate co-op may be available to students who are pursuing thesis and non-thesis (or professional) degrees. Participation is optional, and admission is determined after consultation with your graduate adviser and department. Contact the co-op program in your degree area for details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Co-op is not open to one-year graduate degrees, graduate certificates and diplomas, and non-degree graduate students.
