SouthEastern Undergraduate Sociology Symposium (SEUSS) - held each spring, the SEUSS draws students from across the country, providing them with the opportunity to present their research in a conference setting.
The Laney Graduate School and the Rollins School of Public Health have approved a new MPH/PhD dual degree program.
Students in the PhD program in Sociology may apply to the Rollins MPH program in any of five departments, including Behavioral Science and Health Education, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Global Health, and Health Policy and Management, finishing their MPH course work in one year, instead of the usual two. Students completing this combined professional and academic training will be well-prepared for a wide range of employment opportunities in academia, government, and the nonprofit sector. We are excited to be launching this new program in Sociology, along with our new Health concentration.
