Twin Cities Program

MS: Sociology: Corrections

MS: Sociology: Human Services Planning and Administration

The Twin Cities program is designed to bring a majority of our graduate course offerings to working professionals in the metro area on a regular basis. The program offers one course per term, three terms per year, on a revolving basis. Once admitted, students may begin the cycle of coursework in any academic term.

Classes typically meet one evening per week in fall and spring semesters and two evenings per week in summer session. However, an increasing number of these offerings are becoming available online in the designated academic term.

With continuous enrollment through the cycle, students can complete 27 credits toward their degree. If you are following the thesis guidelines, you will need 3 additional graduate credits and three thesis credits to complete your degree. If you are following the alternate plan paper guidelines, you will need 5-6 additional graduate credits and 1-2 alternate plan paper credits to complete your degree. Students often complete these additional credits with elective, online courses, Twin Cities offerings from other departments, or by taking some coursework on the Mankato campus (typically evening classes meeting once a week).
