Что я буду изучать?

The Cultural, Social and Political Thought Program (CSPT) is an interdisciplinary program that brings Sociology faculty and students with interdisciplinary theoretical interests into contact with a vibrant network of like-minded scholars in other academic units on campus, and thereby enriches the intellectual climate of the Sociology department.

Students wishing to pursue the CSPT option must receive permission from the Cultural, Social, and Political Thought program. Normally, this is done by applying for entry into the program prior to a student beginning their MA studies.

This program requires 7.5 units of course work (i.e. five courses) and a 7.5-unit thesis (SOCI 599) whose topic must be within the field of CSPT.

CSPT Master's students are required to demonstrate competence in both sociological theory (SOCI 503 or 504) and method (SOCI 507 and SOCI 515). Students must also complete two CSPT graduate courses (3.0 units). CSPT students are encouraged to consider taking an additional sociology course in their main area of interest. Additional courses may be taken either for credit, or as an auditor.

Course Requirements:


Thesis (SOCI 599): 7.5 Units

Intermediate Social Statistics (SOCI 507): 1.5 Units

Qualitative Research (SOCI 515): 1.5 Units

One of the following:


Foundations of Sociological Explanations (SOCI 503): 1.5 Units

Current Issues in Social Theory (SOCI 504): 1.5 Units
