Department of Sociology

Certificates

The Graduate program currently offers three graduate certificates; one in Diversity, one in Teaching Sociology, and one in Advanced Research Methods in Sociology.  Coursework that meets the requirements for a certificate also counts toward the total credits required for the Masters. In addition, the sociology department participates in an interdisciplinary graduate certificate in Disability Studies. The certificates we offer are not gainful employment certificates, instead they are course of study certificates.  

The Graduate Faculty of the Sociology Department has a strong emphasis in diversity and inequality issues, highlighting race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class. For sociology graduate students wishing to concentrate in these areas, we offer a graduate certificate of specialization. Completion of the certificate provides evidence of specialized study.
