Application and Admissions

The Department of Sociology admits approximately 4-5 new graduate students each year selected from approximately 100 applications.

The deadline for application for admission is December 31. Decisions are made in late February or early March and announced by March 15.

All applications should be submitted online – Apply Now (GRE will not be required this year due to Covid-19)

The Department strives to provide five years of financial support for all full-time Ph.D. students, including tuition, health insurance and a twelve-month stipend, so long as students remain in good academic standing and are making acceptable progress toward completing degree requirements. 

We encourage interested students to apply to the Explore Hopkins program to get to know us and the university better.
