In the current climate of budget constraints, we are prioritizing funding our current students.
We expect to reopen admissions for fall 2022, with an application deadline of December 30, 2021.
We plan to hold a series of webinars about the Sociology PhD program in spring 2021, so please stay tuned to this page!

For review and decision purposes you are required to upload scanned unofficial transcripts from each undergraduate and graduate institution attended. While credits from one institution may appear on the transcript for a second institution, unofficial transcripts must be submitted from each institution regardless of the length of attendance, and whether or not courses were completed.
Only after you are recommended for admission will you be required to provide official transcripts.
Failure to list and submit transcripts from all institutions previously attended is considered to be a violation of academic ethics and may result in the cancellation of your admission or dismissal from the university.
