The Department of Sociology at UMass Boston announces a new PhD Program in Sociology. Coursework and research experiences will prepare students for outstanding academic careers as well as for leadership roles as applied sociologists in public and private agencies and research organizations. Applications are welcome for Fall, 2013.
The PhD Program in Sociology builds on the success of our MA Program in Applied Sociology and the research and scholarly accomplishments of our dynamic faculty. PhD students will complete a core set of courses in social theory and research methods and then concentrate in one of three areas: health, mental health and health care services; communities and crime; or immigration and globalization.
Graduate assistantships will provide doctoral students with opportunities to conduct research in collaboration with faculty and to teach classes under faculty supervision. Training and research opportunities will be enriched through partnerships with the Departments of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and at the Harvard Medical School, with the Hannover Medical School in Germany, with UMass Boston’s McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies, and with faculty in human services at Salem State University and in criminology at UMass Lowell.
