About

The Department of Sociology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, provides a unique opportunity to work with a strong group of active research scholars in the following areas: family and the life course; inequality (race, class and gender); physical and mental health.

Overview

The department has a strong culture of graduate student mentoring. Graduate students work with faculty in the classroom and on individual research projects. This master degree in Sociology is offered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  

Additional research resources include: major data sets that provide students with opportunities to do independent or collaborative research; outstanding survey research and statistics training; excellent computer facilities; strong ties to the Bureau of Sociological Research (BOSR) and the Survey Research and Methods Program (SRAM); and a long history of substantial grant support from a range of federal research agencies (currently NIH, NSF, NIMH, NIDA).
