The graduate program in the Department of Sociology at CU Boulder seeks to train creative and productive scholars and teachers. The department maintains a strong emphasis in the theories and methods of the discipline with strengths in a wide range of research areas.

The department offers a Doctor of Philosophy program focusing on teaching, researching and training in theory and methods. We do not offer a separate Master of Arts program. The program is designed for students seeking a PhD, and students obtain their master’s degree en route to the PhD.
