MA in Critical Sociology
Gökbörü Tanyildiz (Graduated in 2013)
"I believe that the MA level of graduate study poses a palpable challenge for students who are transitioning from consuming knowledge to producing knowledge. This challenge makes choosing an appropriate MA program a serious deliberation. My choice to undertake an MA in Critical Sociology (MACS) at Brock University was excellent for a number of reasons. First, MACS provided a wide range of expertise that was crucial for my intellectual development. In departmental academic events, faculty shared their research in progress. These events were opportunities for me to engage in mind-stretching and informal conversations with faculty and my peers. Second, the intimate academic atmosphere of MACS allowed me to be in close touch with the professors, my thesis committee members, and other invaluable personnel resources. The close-knit community of MACS encouraged me to enrich my understandings and pursue my academic interests. Third, the outstanding quality of the supervision I received in the MACS program paved the way for my academic growth. Owing to the education and care I received in MACS, I was accepted to many highly competitive PhD programs in several social science fields at Canadian universities.
Presently, I am continuing my doctoral studies in Sociology at a well-respected institution. I sincerely recommend that you considering joining the MACS community, where I’m sure you’ll enjoy many of the same tangible educational benefits."
