Degree Types: PhD

The Doctoral Program in Sociology offers an expansive view of the discipline.  Our theoretical and methodological teaching and research areas are quite literally unlimited, with our only standard being one of intellectual excellence.  The Department has particular strength in several substantive specialties – the sociology of culture; social organization, institutions, and social movements; sexualities; social inequality, labor markets, race, and gender; comparative and historical sociology; law and society; economic sociology – and we welcome research that falls outside of these areas as well.

See Sociology Degree Requirements for specific classes and procedures needed to complete this program.
