Graduate Programs

Our department is the ideal place to complete master’s and doctoral work. We offer the range of specialized seminars needed for strong graduate-level training but are a small and collegial department so that students and faculty experience the type of intellectual interaction, supervision, and research collaboration that makes graduate work exciting.


Our program offers:

  • A diversity of theoretical perspectives;
  • A research-intensive environment, seen in our excellent record of ongoing externally funded research; and
  • A commitment to rigorous training in research methods to provide graduate students with an opportunity to develop outstanding analytical and research skills that are invaluable in scholarly and applied contexts.
