MA in sociology
The University of Louisville offers a master of arts degree in sociology which is designed to provide a strong statistical and methodological foundation for students who wish to move directly into the workforce upon completion of their master's degree, as well as for those who plan to pursue a doctoral degree in sociology. The master's degree requires a total of 34 credit hours, 28 hours of core/elective courses and six hours of research study (formerly thesis hours), and students can typically complete the program within two years.
*For students interested in graduate assistantships or other university funding, please note that funding is only available to master's-level students who plan to pursue both their MA and PhD in sociology at UofL. Those students should select the joint "MA-PhD in sociology" option on their graduate application. Any questions about this or any other graduate program matter, contact Dr. Jonetta Weber.
