The aim of the graduate Sociology programs at the University of North Texas is to develop independent thinkers who are capable of conducting quality, innovative research in a particular area of interest.
While pursuing a Master of Arts or Master of Science degree in Sociology, you learn to apply social science perspectives and tools to social problems, thereby improving the quality of life. This equips you for a career in academia or applied sociology.
We offer flexible scheduling with classes available in the late afternoon or evening to accommodate work schedules and other personal commitments. You can also work closely with faculty members in a variety of educational and research areas, such as:
- Comparative and global sociology
- Development and social change
- Environmental sociology
- Health, illness and aging
- Marriage and family
- Race and ethnicity
- Social inequality and stratification
- Social media
- Sustainable societies
- Work and organizations
Our students often present their work at national and regional conferences and earn other recognitions for their research and teaching.
UNT provides a wide variety of services exclusively to graduate students. The Graduate Student Writing Support office can help you with writing, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research offers assistance with statistical research.
The Toulouse Graduate School offers several professional development workshops, including a Thesis Boot Camp. Many of the workshops are available online for your convenience.
