Recruitment Days

Every year the Department of Sociology invites a limited number of prospective graduate students to recruitment days. All meals, lodging and transportation are provided by the department.

During the recruitment days students will attend luncheons and dinners, meet current graduate students, and interact with faculty to learn about their interests. Furthermore, our guests will tour facilities available to graduate students, the Baylor campus and the surrounding Waco area.

To attend future recruitment days applicants should submit all necessary materials to the graduate school by January 15th. Recruitment days typically held the last week or two in February or the first week of March.
