The Department offers work for the degrees of master of science and doctor of philosophy in sociology or rural sociology. Graduates have a broad understanding of sociology, address complex societal problems, and communicate directly with scientific colleagues and the general public. Graduate students choose a Ph.D. concentration area "Social & Economic Disparities" under which Sociology of Families would lie. This emphasis offers students advanced training in the sociology of family, intimate relationships, and life course using both qualitative and quantitative techniques. The primary objective of the concentration is to prepare students for careers in teaching, research, and/or practice (e.g., social services, government) in the area of family. Another objective is to assist students for whom sociology of families is a secondary area of study in their efforts to meaningfully address family related issues within their primary fields (e.g., community studies, criminology, social psychology). Teaching and research assistantships are available.
