The aim of the Graduate Program in Sociology is to prepare students for scholarly and applied research and teaching. The program combines an emphasis on competence in social theory and research methods, broad exposure to the key concerns of the discipline, and opportunities for the development of each student's individual interests. The curriculum is designed to promote students’ abilities to think broadly and theoretically, to research creatively with sophisticated skills, and to critically understand substantive developments within sub-fields of the discipline. In short, students are encouraged to become active contributors to sociological knowledge.
