MA in Sociology of Education

About Our M.A. Students

Our program is small and selective. Students join us from around the country and the world. They hold undergraduate degrees from small and large public and private colleges and universities. Their majors include sociology, psychology, economics, public policy, history, early childhood education, English, political science, Latino studies, urban studies, and many others.

Some of our students have completed their undergraduate studies within the last few years. Others have returned to school to enroll in our M.A. program after they have been in the work world for a number of years. Most have had some experience in the field of education as volunteers, classroom teachers, nonprofit staff members, tutors in after-school programs, or through research.

Many of our students intend to continue on for advanced doctoral study. Others in our program intend to work, after they complete their studies, in education policy, government agencies, and youth and community service organizations.
