Graduate Program

The UMKC Sociology Department MA program is in moratorium and is not accepting applications at this time.

The UMKC Department of Sociology offers a Master of Arts in Sociology.

An MA in Sociology opens the door to a myriad of career paths. Some of our students have gone on to teach at the community college or high school level, while others have entered the corporate, nonprofit and government worlds. Our MA is also excellent preparation for students who plan to pursue doctoral level studies.

Dr. Smirnova is the Graduate Studies Advisor and can be reached via email at: You can also call (816) 235-1116 to set an appointment. The UMKC catalog has more information.
