Thank you for your interest in the MA Program in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee (UWM). Before applying, please read this entire page.

When an application for graduate study at UWM is submitted, the Graduate School first reviews it to confirm that certain minimum qualifications (see section A below) are met. If minimum qualifications are met, the application is then considered by the Sociology Department, where a faculty committee reviews applications and makes the final admissions decisions.

New students are admitted to the MA Program in Sociology for the fall semester only. For best consideration, completed applications should be received by the Department no later than January 10th of the year that you intend to start, but if space permits we continue to review applications until mid-April.
