“The curriculum and program structure for the Master of Arts in Sociology at Texas State provided a strong foundation for future academic pursuits. Coursework, mentorship from faculty/staff, access to information and resources about navigating an academic career and graduate school were invaluable to my development as a researcher and aspiring scholar. Finally, the departmental culture among faculty and staff to assist, encourage, and guide students really made Texas State feel like home.

Shared Information


The master’s program in Sociology at Texas State University is what enabled me to get to where I am today. The faculty and staff were always supportive and kind. Not only being a student there, but working with the department as well as a graduate teaching assistant strengthened my ability to work well with others, pursue my research interests, feel confident in the path I am following, and make resilient connections with others in academia. I was given a full ride to the PhD program at University of Colorado in Boulder and am 100% prepared to start the newest chapter of my life thanks to Texas State. I am continuing my research looking at the sociology of culture through music and film with the hopes of pushing the use of film as a teaching material in sociology in the United States.” -Danni Lopez-Rogina, MA Sociology ‘17
