We currently offer three masters degree programs:
Demographic/Social Analysis, M.A.
Available as a stand alone program or as a step along the way to the Ph.D. for doctoral
students in sociology, political science, and economics who wish to earn a master's
degree first. Students interested in this degree are required to complete the standard
set of five core and four elective courses. Advancement to candidacy for the DASA
degree should be completed prior to Ph.D. advancement.
Medicine, Science & Technology Studies, M.A.
Prepares students to respond to the significant and rapidly changing impact of medicine
and technology upon economies and societies around the world. The M.A. in MSTS is
available as a 1-year, stand-alone program or can be earned along with the Ph.D. by
doctoral students in the social sciences or other UCI programs.
