Overview

Master of Arts - Sociology

The Department of Sociology at McGill University has very high standards and an excellent record of placing students in both academic and non-academic careers in institutions ranging from the University of Chicago and Berkeley to StatsCan and CEGEPs. 

The Department has a stellar record of research publications and a lively graduate program. 

The university has particular strengths in the following fields:

  • comparative political sociology and development
  • diversity and inequalities
  • population and health

This program provides excellent methodological training, but is principally designed for students who wish to gain a first experience doing original research. 

Some students have stopped at this stage; more have gone on to higher degree work. 

Researching and writing a thesis requires considerable effort, and this program typically takes two years to complete.
