Advising Information for Sociology Graduate Students

Sociology M.A. 

Dr. Angie Henderson (angie.henderson@unco.edu) is the Sociology Graduate Program Coordinator. Each Sociology M.A. student has a Faculty Advisor assigned to them for the first year of the program. The Faculty Advisor is listed in Degree Works in URSA. During the student’s second semester or after at least 9 credits are completed in the program, students will complete an MA Committee Application form to determine whether they will complete a research report or thesis.

Graduate Assistantships

Each semester, the Department of Sociology offers a limited number of graduate assistantships to students who have been admitted to the Graduate Program. Most assistantships pay a 4-month stipend for in-state students and are awarded based on qualifications. Out-of-state assistantships are available in some cases. Graduate assistants work closely with professors in teaching and/or research activity and are appointed on a semester-by-semester basis. Funded work is also available through the Social Research Lab. For more information, contact the Graduate Program Coordinator or email the department at Sociology@unco.edu.
