Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

The program provides pretty comprehensive graduate education. I definitely did work outside the majority and didn't have a lot of guidance in my research. Our program focuses a lot on certain methods, and on regions of the world, at the expense of others - students who work beyond those are definitely at a disadvantage.

The program provides pretty comprehensive graduate education. Although I wish I had more guidance in my research. The university seems to focus too much on certain regions of the world, at the expense of others - hence making students who work beyond the conventional regions, at a disadvantage.

There is a lot of support for the graduate students in this program--it's a rigorous program, but not cut-throat at all, really friendly.

Graduate school provides pretty generous funding, which allows one to live comfortably by humble student living standards. It would too tight for two people, but covers all the necessities (accomodation, food, some books) of one person. My program has some great faculty members, not all of whom are available whenever graduate students would like to be available, but they're good lecturers and good resource. The student body is pretty diverse in the program, we have students from various parts of the world doing different types of research, from demographic studies to qualitative ethnographic projects. I've made some good friends while studying here, and miss those who have already left.
