Sociology : Admission Requirements
Master’s and doctoral students usually begin their programs in September. This is mainly because funding is normally available only for students beginning their programs at that time.
Admission to the master’s program requires a bachelor’s degree, with a minimum overall average of B+ (6.0) in the final two full years of credit units or undergraduate work. Students without the prerequisites for the graduate courses they need to take may be required to take the prerequisites as part of their degree program (see Sociology graduate course listings for details). The admissions selection process is competitive. Not all students who meet the minimum requirements will be admitted. Typically, 10 to 12 master’s students are admitted to the program each year.
