The following information is intended to help students and faculty navigate the policies and procedures of the Graduate Program in Sociology. Since it does not cover all University regulations governing graduate education at the University of Georgia, it should be treated as a supplement to the Graduate School Bulletin, Theses and Dissertations Guidelines, and the Graduate School’s Academic Regulations and Procedures. The Graduate Program in Sociology operates within an administrative structure established by the Graduate School. It is the responsibility of all faculty and graduate students to familiarize themselves with the relevant Graduate School policies.

The University of Georgia is committed to the principle of affirmative action and Equal Opportunity.  The Department encourages applications from qualified minorities and women.  Presented in Appendix E is the Department’s Human Rights Statement.

The Department's requirements are contained in the Graduate Student Handbook.  The sections of the Graduate Student Handbook can be accessed through the links on the right under Graduate Program Requirements.  To download the Handbook as a whole in PDF format, click here.  Please note that changes are updated on the website regularly; however, the pdf format is updated on an annual basis.
