The course-based MA program in Sociology is an intensive year of study in core courses in theory, research design, research methods and statistics, followed by a Capping Project (SOC 900).  Students are also required to complete mandatory Ethics Training and Professional Development.  A supervisor will oversee the student's work in SOC 900, which includes a critical appraisal of the literature and formulation of a research topic in a subject area of interest.  During the winter term, and concurrent with a course in research design (SOC 533), the student's topic is developed into a research project which demonstrates the student's ability to work in a scholarly manner.  The caping project also requires an oral examination.
