The graduate program in the Department of Sociology is designed for Ph.D. students. We do not accept students for the single purpose of acquiring a master’s degree in sociology. However, the Department’s doctoral students may obtain a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Sociology during the course of their doctoral studies by completing 1) a minimum of 37 units of required coursework and 2) other program milestones.
