|Field of Study:
||Graduate study in Sociology at UNB prepares you for a variety of careers and our graduates have gone on to work both inside and outside academe. The PhD is primarily a research degree although we also place considerable emphasis on teaching competence. The dissertation must be an original contribution to knowledge, reflected through scholarship and research ability, and have high literary standards.
||Sociology (Ph.D.) at University of New Brunswick - School of Graduate Studies
Applicants to the PhD Program are expected to have demonstrated a high level of academic achievement and to have completed the course requirements for the MA in Sociology described above in addition to an MA thesis or its equivalent. PhD applicants intending to do their research in one of the areas of departmental strength – media, communication and culture: health and wellbeing; or family and domestic violence – will generally have an easier time finding two relevant committee members.
