Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

Good place for both quantitative and qualitative research programs. Excellent, very well known faculty. I work in Soc of Law and it's a top 3 dept for that.

Graduation Year: 2015

I have absolutely no complaints about the program itself or the Chicago area. I suppose there are areas that are more affordable, but for a big city, living in and around Chicago is quite affordable. The professors are first rate and the funding is fantastic. I have particularly liked the interdisciplinary opportunities at the school and the many research workshops and speakers that the campus attracts. I am forever grateful that I had the opportunity to get my PhD here fully funded.

There are not enough teaching opportunities (TA opportunities not included). Most other I know have been given the chance to teach their own courses. Having the Searle certificate is not an equivalent and means nothing off campus.

Opportunities to teach courses can sometimes be limited, but otherwise it is difficult to find a con. Faculty publish with students and are supportive and available. The program prepares one for the job market and is highly competitive. The environment is one of collegiality and support. Life is very good if you are a graduate student in this department.
