Applications for the MA program are accepted for Fall Semester only. Applicants who wish to begin coursework prior to their admission to the Graduate School may do so through the Graduate Non-Degree Program.
Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited U.S. institution, or a certifiable international equivalent with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 (on a scale of 4.0). They should have five undergraduate sociology courses (or approved equivalents, with no more than two of the latter) with a GPA of at least 3.0. Our required graduate advanced statistics course has a prerequisite of undergraduate statistics with a grade of B- or better. The GRE test is not required.

“I will be forever grateful for the support provided by professors and administrative staff throughout the duration of my MA degree. The sociology department and their graduate program provided immensely beneficial courses as well as mentorship that created an educationally empowering environment. I use these skills daily in my current roles as a Doctoral Candidate and when teaching undergraduate students.” – Amanda Horn, PhD Sociology Student, Wayne State University
