All incoming students must complete a core curriculum of our courses. Students entering with a master’s degree from another institution may waive specific core courses by petitioning the graduate committee. The M.A. requires 30 credits, including:12 credits of theory, methods, and statistics; 6 credits of advanced Sociology seminars; and 12 additional credits of graduate courses in Sociology or related fields. A master’s thesis option may be substituted for six hours of graduate credit.
