Major: Sociology (This Major's Salary over time)
Overall, I found the Graduate Department in Sociology to have too few faculty for the number of students. This leads to shortcomings for students in that many students did not have faculty advisors; there was little faculty support in terms of preparing a student for their comprehensive exams and writing dissertations; and seminar classes are much too large. It is a fairly new program and unfortunately still lacks in providing students with the support needed. Students don't get what they pay for.
