The Department of Sociology offers assistantships to as many students as it can fund each year. Because research is a vital component of the graduate program, most graduate awards given by the department are in the form of research assistantships. 

Assistantships are awarded for Fall and Winter Semesters for 20 hours per week and often extend into the Spring and Summer Terms. Additional paid research opportunities often emerge during the Spring and Summer Terms that can supplement students' assistantships.
