Prospective applicants are encouraged to communicate with CCC faculty via phone and/or email and secure answers to any questions they might have regarding the program. When feasible, a face-to-face meeting may be arranged.

Applicants should submit required materials through School of Liberal Art's On-Line Application to Graduate Programs by December 1. Be sure to select one of the three areas (Sociology, Social Work, or Urban Studies) under "specialization". Shortly after the December 1 deadline for admission, your file will be reviewed and you will be notified as to whether it is complete or incomplete.
