The Department of Sociology at the University of Washington has a long history of providing excellent training for the next generation of sociologists.  As a result, we welcome applications for admission to our graduate program. We typically receive between 150 and 200 applications each year and enroll a diverse and highly qualified cohort of 12 to 18 new graduate students.  All admitted students enter our program with the intention to receive a Ph.D. degree; students who have not previously earned a MA degree in sociology or a closely related field complete a MA degree along the way.  We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our program and determine whether The University of Washington would be a good place for you to pursue your graduate studies.  Questions about the department or our admissions process should directed to the Graduate Program Advisor at socadvis@uw.edu or (206) 221-3280.
