Current Graduate Course Offerings

 graduate class image 2


Students need to register with the School of Graduate Studies before enrolling in classes. Registration opens on August 1st and students may begin enrolling in classes any time after they are registered.

The Sociology Department conducts graduate student enrolment in person. Please pick up a course enrolment form from the SGS website or the graduate office, complete it and submit it back to the graduate office.

Students outside the Department of Sociology must submit a Course Add form to the Sociology Graduate Office to request enrolment in Sociology courses. The form must be completed and signed by the student’s home Graduate Chair/Coordinator and the instructor of the course for the request to be considered. Sociology students taking courses outside of the Department of Sociology should check with the individual units as to their enrolment procedures as these vary by unit.
