    Hey everyone ? I would like to ask about the Sociology Department for PhD in Southern Illinois University, Carbondale? What is its ranking among sociology departments in the world & in America? What is its experience? How well does it stand? Does anyone know?
  2. Hi everyone, I will be switching from the field in which I did my undergrad to something very different for grad school. I will apply for master's programs this year, and I am currently making my list of schools. My ultimate goal is a PhD and, hopefully, academia. Based on what I've seen, virtually all professors at decent schools got their degrees from top 10 grad programs in the field. So, if I want to get a job in academia, I need to aim pretty high for my PhD training. Having that in mind, how much weight should I give to ranks of MA programs I am looking at? I know that it's important to find a good fit and do my best wherever I go. However, there are not that many funded MA programs that have research in my area of interest, with some programs ranked below top 100. So, my question is: how low is too low in terms of the potential MA program's rank? How much does this rank affect PhD admissions chances? I know that there are many factors in the admissions process, and I'm just wondering where the rank of your school stands in there and if going to a little known school could affect my career later on?
  3. Are there any general rankings for history grad programs that are newer than the US News list from 2013? Thanks!
  4. How important is rank at a Masters level? As long as I'm active in conferences, publishing, and finding a big name mentor, does MA rank really matter that much to get into a wonderful PhD program later on? I visited University of Alabama and fell in love. At least one funded conference a semester, Trudier Harris as a mentor, cheap living with a nice stipend, and my partner got in fully funded as well. But then a few days later I got accepted to Purdue, and while I've booked a flight to go see my options, I can't tell if considering turning down Purdue (and it's high rank and English Lit tenure-track rate) is ridiculous. On the other hand, I feel like Alabama has valued me from the beginning, and Purdue might pigeonhole me into 19th century, when I'm not sure that's what I want to do. To make matters worse, Purdue means breaking up with my partner, and while I value my future more than my present happiness/sacrifices, I can't tell if Alabama would seem so appealing without knowing I'd have the perfect life with my partner there, including being each others support systems and getting 1.5 pups. Basically, I know rank is essential in PhD for tenure-track jobs, but how important is the rank of the MA university to get into those great PhD programs?
  5. The Guardian just released their 2017 global rankings for theology/divinity/religious studies last week. I was curious about people think about these types of rankings and how much stock we should put in these. Even though they're not particular to people's sub-fields, they do give a general sense of these schools' reputation. Do you also think that these rankings inform which schools you would consider applying to (whether for a Masters or PhD?) https://www.theguardian.com/education/2017/mar/08/qs-world-university-rankings-2017-theology-divinity-and-religious-studies
