The Sociology Program offers programs leading to the Master of Science in Sociology and the Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Applied Social Research. The goal of the graduate program in sociology is to facilitate the development of theoretical, methodological and substantive competence appropriate for students’ interests and career goals.
