Department of Sociology Current Courses


Graduate seminars are important building blocks for gaining expert knowledge in sociology and developing critical career skills. Each semester, the department offers several topical seminars and an advanced methods or analytic techniques course. Seminars rotate through the Department’s areas of training expertise on a three-year cycle to enhance graduate training and increase predictability.

Our current multi-year graduate seminar rotation is scheduled from fall 2019 to spring 2022. The WSU Pullman campus schedule of classes contains additional details about upcoming sociology graduate (and undergraduate) courses. The full list of sociology courses at the Pullman Campus can be found in the WSU Catalog. Graduate courses are numbered between 500 and 800.
