The Department of Sociology offers courses of study leading to the degrees of Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). We include among our research and teaching strengths the following areas: aging, gender, sexuality, health, political sociology/social movements, crime, family, environment, qualitative methods, quantitative methods, and social theory.

Graduate studies in Sociology are designed to provide students with a solid grounding in research methods and theory as well as the ability to specialize in different areas of study.
