  1. Just realized US News updated the ranking for 2021. Any comment on the new ranking? It has been 4 years since they last updated it!
  2. (posted to the PolySci forum a few months ago, but I think it would be valuable to get input from people in sociology PhDs...) I'm hoping to apply to Ph.D. programs in 2-3 years (taking some time off after my undergrad). Broadly I'm interested in studying social movements, voter behavior, and political culture, and while I am not opposed to quantitative methods (and do already have some background in them), I really want to attend a doctoral program that is strong in its qualitative methods training, particularly ethnographic research - interviewing, observation, etc. I'm not sure how

  4. Good afternoon, I am an italian student studing sociology in Turin (northern Italy) and I am currently planning the research for my final disseration. I am taking a qualitative research (using both ethnography and interwievs) in two boxe gyms in Torino (one classical gym and one free gym in a community center). The aim of my research is exploring the dynamic of social groups and the gender perspective in both gyms. I am here asking for help because I would like to study some theory before the fieldwork. I would like some advices on books and papers regarding gender roles in
  5. I am looking to start this thread giving insight on which American universities that offer a PhD program in Sociology "guarantee" full funding and the degrees of this concept of full funding through the firsthand experience of current PhD students. I encourage to you, whether applicant, student or PhD holder in Sociology to add your thoughts, experiences and feedback on this issue. I believe this can be beneficial to all of us because I may even venture to conspire that there may be correlation with the college's policy and/or the situation of each Sociology of department.
  6. I am thinking of applying to PhD Studies in the next maybe 2 years. What might be a good strategic move for someone with both a BSW and and MSW (non clinical)? I want to go to a school with a robust research support but to have another degree in Social Work would be overkill. I want to obtain a PhD that speaks to the current economic climate if possible. Also gotta add I've been out of school for 10+ years and out of this game for quite some time. My options are a PhD program at UofC, UofA or another school that has a distance based PhD program.
  7. I have received offers from each of these schools with similar amounts of funding and tuition waivers for my Master's degree. I am torn between them as I went to OKState for undergrad so I know the school and am comfortable with it, but I have heard many positive things about KState as well. Does anyone have any further insight in relation to these programs? I have phone calls set up and know a fair bit about OSU's program, but my decision deadline is approaching in April and I am definitely having some trouble picking between the two.
  8. Hello, guys! I'm an applicant admiring Sociology Ph.D. program in fall 2020 term. International student from Asia. Targeting top 20 programs. I wonder my TOEFL and GRE score will tackle my admission :(. Most schools require TOEFL 100 as a minimum and I got 103. My GRE score is V-162 Q-168 AW-3.5. I'm not sure about the process of admission, so I'm worried about my AW score and TOEFL score make me cut-off in a long-list. If it does, I think about retaking GRE for other programs accepting applications until January. Should I retake TOEFL and GRE? FYI, I published 5
  9. I'm a current Masters student in economics, and many of my research interests appear to align more with the work of sociologists than economists. I've searched through a few doctoral programs already, but I have just a few questions: Is it problematic to have no true formal background in sociology? Do doctoral programs value strong math backgrounds? Is this sort of transition common and does anyone have any firsthand experience with it? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated as well
  10. I'm a sophomore undergrad in a top 10 institution studying study Econ and sociology. I'm interested in social science in general, but pure economics (too much math for me) or pure social/political theory are not interesting to me. Other than that, I would like to explore the breadth of all social sciences. I wonder if there are recommendations for good master programs that prepare students for phd programs? Thanks!
  11. Hey everyone, Could anyone familiar with UCLA's sociology department help me out with a quick question on the SOP word limit? The division-wide application portal says up to 500 words allowed, but since this is so much lower than the requirement for all other sociology departments I'm applying to it struck me as odd. I also happened to read someone's statement for UCLA that went significantly over that (1000+ words) from a few years ago who was accepted (I didn't get the statement directly from them so I feel weird to reach out and ask them myself about this). The sociology department web
  12. I thought this was the best place to ask these questions, so... Which Oxford masters programme is easier to get in; Economics, Sociology or Philosophy? I have a client who wants to know. Also, does it matter which undergrad uni he went to? He currently studies at a top uni in Scotland (St Andrews or Edinburgh - I am not at liberty to say which, sorry). Currently studies Economics and Philosophy, but could switch to Sociology as he like it as well. Also by studying which is it easier to gain a job at a university? Thank you all for your answers!
  13. Hi all, I'm looking up programs in the UK that touch on gender, and so far I have stumbled upon these three that look intriguing: 1) Gender and Women's Studies and Sociology MA @ Lancaster University: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/postgraduate-courses/gender-and-womens-studies-and-sociology-ma/ 2) MSc Applied Gender Studies Masters Degree @ University of Strathclyde: https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/appliedgenderstudies/ 3) MLitt, MSc Gender Studies (Applied) @ University of Stirling: https://www.stir.ac.uk/courses/pg-taught/communicatio
  14. I started my PhD at the University of Toronto last year in a social science related field. However, I figured out that my research does not match much with the faculty members here. But maybe I could still successfully complete my degree here in a collaborative way as I have found some professors in other departments willing to partially supervise me. However, in the meantime, I applied to Oxford and received a fully funded offer where I have a far better match for my research topic. Besides, the research group is also quant focused methodology-wise. But the difficulty now is that some pe
  15. Hey everyone! Just wanted to start this nerve-wracking thread! The first interview for the HSS @ U Penn came in today! Post results here, should you feel inclined, and this can be general discussion on Acceptances/Rejections/interviews as well. Good luck to everyone & may the odds be always in our favor!
  16. Hey everyone, Looking for some advice. I was offered full funding from a PhD program that usually hovers in the high teens-low twenties in the US News rankings. I was also offered tuition remission (though no stipend) by the master of theological studies program at Harvard Divinity School. I'm interested in studying the sociology of religion and feel that a theology masters at Harvard may help me get into a top 5 or 10 soc PhD program (I was rejected by every top 10 PhD program to which I applied). i have a BA from a mediocre state school so i feel a masters from Harvard may help if i wer
  17. Anyone want to share which recruitment weekends they'll be attending and/or what to expect? I'm headed to University of Kentucky's in Lexington next weekend and Bowling Green State University's in March. Already accepted to BGSU, and interviewed with UK but no official acceptance yet.
  18. Is it rude or uncommon to not go to a recruitment weekend (after being accepted)? I am not sure that I can make it to a few because of date conflicts but do not want to be the only one who misses it or have it come off as me being ungrateful for the invitation. Also, I thought I saw a thread on here somewhere with recruitment weekend dates for sociology programs but can't seem to find it now. Can anyone help me get to that?
  19. I am anxiously waiting to hear back from the schools I have applied to for my PhD in Sociology. While looking over the 'results' section of this site, I saw that others have already heard back from a couple of the schools I am waiting to hear from (UCSB, UT Austin, and Rice). I checked my statuses online, and my applications are definitely still in review. I don't want to assume anything but am feeling like that means these schools are waiting to send out their rejection letters...does anyone know what is going on with this?
  20. Based on what my undergraduate professor told me, I thought that all applications for sociology graduate programs were reviewed at the same time and did not have rolling admissions but now it seems everyone is finding out from their schools at different times...is there a benefit to applying earlier?
  21. Hey, Was just wondering if anyone could offer any advice as to what kind of questions an applicant can expect if offered an interview. Haven't been offered one yet, but figured it would be best to prepare sooner rather than later. Not entirely sure how to go about it, tho.
  22. Is there a list out there of all or most of the fully-funded sociology masters programs? I am open to anywhere in the world, not just North America. Regarding Canada, I am aware that Canadian Masters generally are fully funded, but I still could use a list of all of them. Failing that, my research interests are in social movements, anarchist and disability movements to be specific, so any program or advisor recommendations in that topic would be helpful.
  23. Hello there! *gives a little wave* Anyone considering their masters or doctorate in Childhood Studies from Rutgers U.? After doing a lot of secondary research online and biting my nails anxiously, I have come to the conclusion that the program shall be the ideal for me. Ergo, want to start a thread for other aspirants as well. Hardly found much forum-wise on the net. Please feel free to contribute. We can take off with the following : 1. Undergrad/Post-grad Institute - 2. Major - 3. GPA - 4. Experience - 5. Aspirations behind pursuing this particula
  24. Hi ? This is my first time posting on here. I have gotten a lot of useful information from here in the past so I figured I would give it a shot! I am currently finishing my Bachelor's degree in Sociology and will be graduating in December of this year. I had a lot of family issues when I was completing my Associate's degree at my community college, and this severely affected my GPA. It was far too low to apply to a Bachelor's program in Speech Pathology to start off. I decided to major in Sociology for my Bachelor's because it is a field that I am very passionate about and was easier to g
  25. I'm applying to phd programs in sociology. Some schools ask you if you'd like them to transfer your application to other departments that they find relevant to your application. Do I check this option? Seems like a good fallback option, but also might demonstrate lack of clarity.
