Graduate Study in Sociology
Our innovative graduate programs in sociology and applied sociology are for students desiring professional careers in academia, research, or policy formation or analysis.
- The programs' applied focus emphasizes community connections and research methodologies that address current social problems and engages students in the social world.
- Evaluation, survey research, quantitative and qualitative methods, and statistical strategies are taught from a hands-on perspective.
- With a strong commitment to research, our nationally recognized faculty (see specializations here) guide students through an exploration of the human condition, globalization, culture, and the current issues that affect us all.

As the only public university in Boston, the cost of graduate study is substantially less than that of neighboring private institutions. We offer assistantships for full-time doctoral students (based on availability of funds) and a limited number of partial assistantships for MA students. Assistantships provide a stipend, full tuition credit, and a partial fee waiver including a proportional waiver of student health insurance fees.
