Interested in pursuing a MA in APPLIED SOCIOLOGY at Cal State Long Beach?
Below is some information on our new program (and an attachment outlining key info for applicants):
The Mission of the Applied Program in Sociology is to prepare graduates for leadership positions in a variety of public and private community organizations that require evidence-based decision-making and policy advocacy skills. Our program is based on the premise that research best serves the community when it is grounded in sociological insight, linked to community organizations, and guided by a commitment to social justice. A significant aspect of the Program is the emphasis on the application of theory and community-based research to the practice of building healthy communities. The problem-based and multidisciplinary approach recognizes the complexity of working in and with communities and organizations and prepares students for work in resource scarce settings often divided along racial, ethnic, class, gender, and ideological lines. Students will be trained for doctoral study or for professional careers as social justice policy advocates working with community organizations to improve the quality of life in their communities.
The deadline for applications is April 15, 2013.
