Graduate programs

Take your degree to the next level

The Department of Sociology offers both master’s (MA) and doctoral (PhD) research-based degree programs. Enrolment can be either on a full-time or part-time basis.

Many of our graduate students are engaged in original research in areas such as:

  • Domestic and family violence
  • Health, health policy and social determinants of health
  • Population studies
  • Law, criminalization and security
  • Media and communication

We usually have between 25 to 40 enrolled graduate students. This means we can offer a collegiate student environment, but also personalized attention with faculty members. A warm and welcoming department with a high research output, sociology is an excellent choice for you and your future research. For inquiries, email
