The Student Experience
A day-in-the-life of a CSU Sociology graduate student includes taking required and elective classes, collaborating with faculty and other graduate students, meeting with research or teaching team members, reading, writing, presenting, teaching undergraduates, creating assignments, grading and holding office hours. Graduate life in the Sociology Department also includes doing research, writing, publishing, applying for grant funding, working on theses and dissertations, attending and presenting at professional conferences – all while enjoying our scenic and sustainability-minded campus and community.
We want you to make the most of your graduate experience. CSU Sociology’s master’s and doctorate programs allow for rigorous but flexible training as you tap into our world-class faculty, research centers, interdisciplinary teams and Tier 1 university research facilities.
Inspired by its land-grant heritage, Colorado State University is committed to excellence, setting the standard for public research universities in teaching, research, service and extension for the benefit of the citizens of Colorado, the United States and the world. Our faculty are deeply committed to doing teaching, mentoring and research that matter, and almost all of them work in at least two of our four areas of strength: Environment and Natural Resources; Food, Agriculture, and Development; Crime, Law, and Deviance; and Social Inequality, Social Justice, and Governance.
