Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Ph.D.-Sociology, M.A.-Sociology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Sociology at the University of Georgia is directed primarily toward students seeking the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Although we offer a Master of Arts Degree, we do not have separate M. A. and Ph.D. curricula. All students entering the program will receive strong basic training in research methods and analytic techniques, as well as a grounding in several major substantive areas. More concentrated advanced study may then be pursued within one or more broadly defined specialty areas. The Department of Sociology currently offers advanced training in five areas of specialization.
