MA program @CU Denver


Recommended Posts

For those of you open to a terminal MA program I wanted to put our department on your radar. We are a two-year MA program with specializations in health, society, and demography; criminology, law, and justice; urban sociology; and sociology of the family. Our curriculum emphasizes a balance between quantitative and qualitative training and many students carve out specializations by taking electives in adjacent disciplines like Geography/GIS, Economics (including econometrics), and Environmental Sciences. Students from the Western and Mountain regions qualify for in-state tuition via our membership in the WICHE compact and the department offers smaller scholarships to most those admitted (outside of this though, there are few financial resources available).

In the past five years, we have placed graduates of our MA program in top doctoral programs like Wisconsin, Washington, Maryland, and Princeton (along with offers from IU, Minnesota, Texas, and Penn State). This year, our lone student applying to PhD programs was just admitted to Ohio State with an enhanced fellowship offer. We help our PhD-bound students via careful mentoring, curated training opportunities domestically and internationally, and co-authoring on published work.

If this year doesn't lead to an offer from the doctoral programs ranked highest on your list, give us a look! We're hosting a virtual open house on February 2 from 6-7PM MST. I'd be happy to share the zoom link if you email me (subject: CU Denver MA Open House).

Good luck!
