The Stanford Sociology Doctoral Program: Approved Survey Courses 2012-13

Students must complete four broad survey courses to demonstrate command of a range of sociological literatures. Students should consult with their adviser to ensure that the combination of courses chosen to meet this requirement exhibits sufficient breadth.

The following courses fulfill the survey course requirement:

Please note: Class offerings rotate. Not all approved survey courses are offered every year. Some courses are offered occasionally or every other year. Doctoral students in the department must take required courses for a letter grade if available and are expected to earn a grade of ‘B+’ in each course. Any grade of ‘B’ or below is considered to be less than satisfactory. No substitutions for the approved courses will be allowed.
