Students who have begun study in sociology or related disciplines at other institutions are invited to transfer to Syracuse University. Students who have earned a sociology Master’s degree comparable to that of Syracuse University may be admitted directly into the Ph.D. program. Students with graduate work in related disciplines (i.e., women's studies, gerontology, policy studies) should discuss with the graduate director what courses and requirements have been fulfilled and the extent of transfer credit to be awarded. A maximum of 30 credit hours may be transferred.
