Sociology

The Department of Sociology, Anthropology, & Criminal Justice offers the Master of Science degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Applied Sociology.

Master of Science (M.S.) in Sociology

The Sociology program emphasizes the learning of applied sociology to improve people's lives and to resolve social problems. Our program, which can be completed in eighteen months, will teach you, for instance, how to analyze actual organizations, conduct evaluation research, and improve group effectiveness. "Sense making" is a skill which you will develop through courses and the required field experience which gives you the opportunity to practice sociology in applied settings under supervision.

Our students develop a sociological toolkit that they can take with them after graduation, to use on the job, while volunteering, and in their personal relationships.
