Master of Arts in Sociology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Department of Sociology offers a distinctive approach to the investigation of social life. This approach builds on The New School's historical connections to European social science to develop our tradition of critical inquiry and engage with contemporary debates and academic communities globally. 

The department has defined some core areas of research that reflect the interests of the faculty: social inequalities; culture and politics; law, rights, and citizenship; historical and comparative sociology; and cities and publics. We emphasize theoretically-informed ethnographic, historical, and interpretive inquiry into the significant social issues of our times in local, national, and transnational contexts. Our department is a vibrant hub of scholarship and intellectual life for our students, faculty, and visitors from many countries.

The Master of Arts program provides a thorough grounding in the historical, theoretical, and methodological development of sociology and gives students the tools to apply this knowledge in the world around them.
