The Combined BA/MA (4+1) program in Sociology provides a coherent, progressive educational experience that prepares students for either immediate entry to a master’s level career or continued study in a PhD program. The BA/MA application process is competitive, as the program is designed for highly-qualified students who are capable of an expedited program. Students choose from two options for their Comprehensive Paper that completes the master’s degree: either a 6-credit thesis, or a 3-credit applied experience plus a 3-credit paper. The program also offers 3 concentration areas (Crime, Law & Deviance; Health & Society; Family, Social Services & Community) for students seeking specialization in high-demand career areas.
