The Department of Sociology at San Diego State University offers a Master of Arts degree in Sociology. Students who earn an M.A. may go on to pursue a doctorate in various disciplines and/or engage directly in other areas such as research, teaching, and social justice work. Our program is a two-year series of 10 courses, which provides students a strong base in both theory and methods as well as rotating seminars in various areas including: criminology, race, globalization, education, media and culture, demography, immigration, sexualities and gender. All students in our program are able to develop their teaching experience and research, while being paid, by assisting professors with their classes and/or research. In their second year, most students work as teaching assistants, running their own break-out sections of our large introduction to sociology course. A community-based research practicum gives students the opportunity to do a group research project on a local issue connected to community organizations and policy work. Students also work with individual professors on their research through grant funding. Many of our students have published policy reports and academic articles with our professors. In addition students have presented their own research, as well as joint research, at local and national conferences including the annual meetings of the California Sociological Association, Pacific Sociological Association and American Sociological Association.
