Applications are due by December 1 to begin the program the following fall. Admissions made for the fall semester only.
Acceptance into the doctoral program in sociology is contingent upon completion of a master's degree in sociology or another social science (e.g., anthropology, economics, political science, etc.) before the start of the sociology program. Applicants with master's degrees in a field other than sociology must demonstrate that their degrees meet the typical sociology program's requirements for completion of the master's degree.
Follow these steps to complete the application process.
