Graduate Information

The University of Windsor’s Master’s and Doctoral programs in Sociology have well-established reputations for critical, contemporary, and interdisciplinary scholarship.

These programs are key features of the Department of Sociology and Criminology and its collective endeavours.

With the support of the faculty, current graduate students, and the University, we have been able to recruit excellent students year after year into our graduate programs. Students who enter into our thoughtfully designed programmes find they offer an inclusive education which simultaneously encourages the discovery and expansion of their own creative ideas.

The exceptional quality and diversity of our graduate students are the most notable strengths of our programs.

Our graduates have very successful careers. They have positions in academic institutions within and outside of Canada. Those graduates working outside of the university have obtained professional positions in national and international research institutes, government and policy departments, legal research agencies, and union and advocacy organizations.

We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to help launch the professional careers of our students.

Graduate students have the opportunity to share their experiences, form connections, and discuss their fields of research with peers in a relaxed environment.
