Program Information
Faculty: School of Graduate Studies
Degree: Master; Co-op
Field of Study: Sociology
Description The MA program in the Department of Sociology is a two-year graduate program designed to provide students an intellectually stimulating and vibrant academic environment to enhance their “sociological thinking” through graduate-level coursework and thesis-based research. Each year, we seek to admit a small number of interested, enthusiastic, and qualified students. Since our cohorts are small, students in our program benefit from close mentorship opportunities with supportive and interested faculty. Students also benefit from flexibility in course offerings and personal attention in designing a program aligned with their individual research interests. Typically, students will require a bachelor’s degree in Sociology to be admitted into the program, but a bachelor’s degree from other cognate disciplines, combined with a planned program of research grounded in sociological inquiry, will also be considered. Applicants are required to contact a potential supervisor prior to applying to the program to ensure suitability of their proposed research and to confirm a willingness on the part of the faculty member to act as their supervisor.
