Degree Program Overview

The graduate programs in Sociology at Sam Houston State University are entirely online and designed to provide students with advanced instruction in methodological techniques, theoretical perspectives, and empirical evidence in substantive areas that guide sociological inquiry. Given our faculty’s varying research agendas, our program emphasizes Public Sociology as its theme. On completion of our program, students cultivate skills that bring sociology to the public sphere through foci such as grant writing, program evaluation, impact assessment, social justice, and community-based research.
