  1. University of Wisconsin – Madison, Madison, WI

This school’s degree program awards master’s and doctoral degrees and enables learners to research with experienced sociology professors. The Department of Sociology requires both graduate classwork and a learner thesis paper to obtain a graduate degree. Graduate learners must also finish a minor degree program in an area outside the field of sociology.

  1. Stanford University in San Francisco, San Francisco, CA

Part of the School of Humanities and Sciences, the Department of Sociology awards a co-terminal master of arts in sociology and PhD in sociology. Undergraduates admitted to the co-terminal master’s degree program can finish the master’s degree soon after finishing with a bachelor’s degree. Then, learners may take advantage of the various PhD programs that Stanford has to offer.

  1. Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL

FSU has a one-year professional degree program leading to a master’s degree in applied social research. It also has a traditional master’s degree program and a traditional doctoral degree program, both of which offer concentrations in demography, health, and aging, and inequalities and social justice.
