Master’s Program

Students in the Master’s program in Sociology at UBC graduate exceptionally prepared for both employment and further studies.

A broad-based curriculum emphasizing advanced quantitative and qualitative methods affords students the skills they will apply in their original research and beyond.

We welcome around 4 students each year into the two-year MA program.


MA students have the opportunity to specialize in any one or more of the Department’s four major research streams:

  • Race, Ethnicity and Migration
  • Sex, Gender and Sexuality
  • Environment and Community
  • Sociology of Health
