The University of Nebraska-Lincoln offers a fully funded Master’s in Sociology. The Department of Sociology provides a unique opportunity to work with a strong group of active research scholars in the following areas: family and the life course; inequality (race, class, and gender); physical and mental health. The majority of students who are accepted into our program on a full-time basis are granted an assistantship. Assistantships can involve teaching duties or research duties, depending on the availability of funds and the needs of the department. Currently, an assistantship covers tuition, a portion of student health fees, and basic living expenses.
