Graduate Program and Certificates

Graduate Certificate Offering in the Department of Sociology at Appalachian State University

The Department of Sociology at Appalachian State University offers one online graduate certificate program, Sociology Graduate Certificate.

The Sociology Graduate Certificate is comprised of six courses (18 credit hours) and can be completed in one full year (i.e. Fall, Spring, Summer semesters). This program is designed to prepare students with a Master’s degree in another field to teach undergraduate sociology courses and/or serve as a foundation for the pursuit of other sociology-related graduate degrees.

This certificate program has no on-campus requirements. Courses are delivered entirely online and asynchronously. Graduate faculty actively engage with students in this program through research, program evaluations, internships, and instructional development opportunities (in preparation for community college or university teaching).

Those interested in these programs can apply here.

For more information about the Sociology Graduate Certificate, please contact the Graduate Program Coordinator, Dr. Anastacia Schulhoff.
