APPLICATION TO THE PROGRAM: Requirements for admission and how to apply1. Complete a bachelor's degree, preferably with a major or minor in Sociology. Students without an undergraduate Sociology major or minor may be admitted to the program but may be required to take additional undergraduate course work in sociology.
APPLYING FOR A GRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANTSHIP
Students may apply for admission at any point in the year and, if accepted, may begin study in Fall or Spring term. We strongly encourage students to begin in Fall term, as this will make progression through the program easier for you.
Applicants seeking a Graduate Teaching Assistantship may wish to defer admission until Fall term, when assistantships are most likely to be available.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Review of applications begins mid-semester in Fall and Spring term. Those seeking admission for Fall term are encouraged to complete their applications by the end of March, especially if they are seeking an assistantship. Those who apply late in Spring term might be admitted to the graduate program for the Fall term, but may be too late to be considered for an assistantship
