Ph.D. Program

The Department of Sociology at Brown University offers outstanding doctoral training. Our graduate student community is small, enabling students to have fulfilling mentoring relationships with faculty and to collaborate meaningfully on research and teaching. As a result, Brown graduates have an outstanding record of research, publications, and professional accomplishment. All admitted students are offered full financial support to cover tuition and living expenses through mechanisms including teaching and research assistantships, fellowships, and traineeships.
