Sociology is the third largest major in the College of Arts & Sciences at SUNY at Albany. The department is known for its studies of demography, crime and deviance, family and gender, political, economic and historical sociology, cultural sociology, urban sociology, migration, and race and ethnicity. As an undergraduate you can choose to apply for a combination B.A./M.A degree or B.A./M.P.A. degree at the beginning of your junior year. The graduate school accepts applications for an M.A. degree, but it is not a separate program from the PhD program. Since there are only 12-15 students accepted into the graduate program each year, if there are two equally qualified applicants those applying for a PhD are accepted over M.A. applicants. The sociology department is also affiliated with a number of research centers including The Center for Social and Demographic Analysis, Lewis Mumford Center for Comparative Urban and Regional Research, The Institute for Research on Women, The Center for Women in Government and Civil Society and Hindelang Criminal Justice Research Center.
