Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Sociology Johns Hopkins University

Course info

Summary

The department’s primary educational goal is to train first-class sociology PhDs. The sociology graduate experience at Johns Hopkins is best characterized as a research apprenticeship – a careful blend of formal instruction, faculty-directed individual study, and supervised yet self-initiated research. The department’s small size and specific concentrations yield a personalized course of study and close relationships with faculty members and fellow graduate students. The social climate is informal, and the mix of students and faculty, all drawn from a wide variety of geographic and social backgrounds, constitutes a rewarding intellectual community.

Requirements for the PhD consist of a core curriculum, elective courses, research apprenticeship experience, a one-semester teaching assistantship, residence requirement and a dissertation with a departmental and university defense. Beyond these requirements, students are free to tailor their graduate training under the supervision of their advisors. Students are expected to complete all University and departmental requirements other than the dissertation by the end of the spring semester of their fourth year in the program (this includes the departmental defense of the dissertation proposal).
