The Sociology Graduate Program at Texas A&M University is a generalist program that supports a wide array of research interests.
Doctoral students declare a major (three courses) and a minor (one course) from any of the American Sociological Association (ASA) sections. The requirement is that faculty members in our department should have knowledge suitable for judging comprehensive exams in the major and minor.
The main research areas of our department are:
- Crime, Law and Deviance
- Organizational, Political and Economic Sociology
- Race, Class and Gender
- Social Psychology
The video below features a tour of the Sociology Department and was presented to prospective students of the Sociology Graduate Program at Texas A&M University on March 26, 2021.
