The University of Massachusetts Amherst


Certificates offered through the Sociology Department are a terrific way for students looking to enhance their academics with a career-oriented set of credentials. They guide students to enroll in an interdisciplinary set of courses and internships that have been developed to provide the analytical and practical skills needed in an increasingly competitive job market.

The Sociology Department offers certificates to students of all majors interested in pursuing careers in the fields of Criminology and The Criminal Justice System, Social Work, Social Research Analysis, and Population Studies. Certificate programs are also available to students outside of the campus community through UMass Amherst Continuing & Professional Education (CPE).
