In May 2021, the Faculty of the Sociology Department approved changes to the Department’s degree requirements which will apply to students entering in the 2021-2022 and subsequent academic years.  The old degree requirements will continue to apply to students who began graduate study in the 2011-2020 academic years.  However, those students may opt to petition the Director of Graduate Studies for permission to meet the new requirements.  Such a petition should include a detailed plan of study showing how the new requirements will be met.
