Twin Cities Program

Page address:


MS: Sociology: Corrections

MS: Sociology: Human Services Planning and Administration


For many years, the Twin Cities program offered one course every spring, summer, and fall term on a three-year cycle for a total of 9 courses and 27 credits. Since its inception, a number of these courses have become available on a more frequent basis as online courses. Thus, beginning in fall of 2015, we have a simplified rotation of courses in the metro area that includes the five 600-level courses that are required for both the MS: Sociology: Corrections and the MS: Sociology: Human Services and Planning program. 

The remaining courses for the Corrections degree (CORR 608 Leadership and Transformation in Corrections and CORR 647 Correctional Theory and Practice) will be regularly offered online.  The remaining courses for the Human Service degree (SOC 517 Program Administration and SOC 566 Program Planning) will also be regularly offered online. 

Students planning the bulk of their coursework in the Twin Cities or online are strongly encouraged to consult with the Graduate Coordinator each semester for specific information on when these online courses will be offered.
