Master’s (12 to 37 months) and Doctorate (24 to 61 months)

The graduate program in sociology offers master’s and doctoral courses, which lead to the award of a master’s or doctoral degree, respectively.

The doctoral course seeks to provide more extensive, in-depth scientific and cultural training than the master’s course and to develop student’s scientific creativity and ability to carry out research.
