Graduate Guides

The Sociology Department has three separate guides for its graduate students

Guide to Graduate Study

Otherwise known as "The Blue Book," which lists all of our graduate program's formal rules and procedures.

Smart Guide to Getting Done

An informal collection of tips for getting through a Boston College Sociology M.A. or Ph.D. degree.

New students will probably want to familiarize themselves with pages 2-9 in the Smart Guide and pages 3-11 in the Guide to Graduate Study before starting classes.
