Our leading edge Master’s program focuses on the “practical side” of sociology and the acquisition of qualitative and quantitative analytic skills that prepare graduates for employment in many professional social science settings. Program foci include the sociology of health, the sociology of aging, selected areas of diversity, gender, and culture, and research methods. With these areas of focus, our program produces students who go on to work at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Social Security Administration, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Aging, the Bureau of the Census, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), medical schools and university research centers, non-profit organizations, and private research organizations. We also have graduates who have gone on to earn PhDs and professional degrees in a range of fields.
