The MA in Critical Sociology is based on three foundations: (i) an examination of theoretical perspectives in critical sociology, (ii) the study of both standard and innovative sociological methodologies, and (iii) the exploration of a diversity of key topics in the field. Through course work and interaction with faculty, students will be exposed to a wide range of critical sociological frameworks, including Marxist political economy, political ecology, critical race theory, feminist analyses, critical animal studies, and poststructuralist, queer and post-colonial paradigms. Students will also examine a diverse range of sociological methodologies, in particular ethnographic research, interview and survey-based research methods, critical discourse analysis, and feminist methodologies. This theoretical and methodological foundation, coupled with exposure to diverse empirical concerns, will prepare students to develop sophisticated and rigorous approaches to critical sociological research and analysis. The program will prepare students to enter a wide variety of employment fields, as well as to proceed to PhD level studies in Sociology, related disciplines, and other interdisciplinary programs. Possible career options include social research and policy development, employment in social advocacy and activism organizations, program evaluation for both governmental and non-governmental organizations, and teaching in community colleges and other venues.
