The Sociology Department Graduate Handbook contains rules, procedures, and suggestions for completing the program. Faculty members and enrolled students should use it as a guide, together with the Graduate School Handbook. Because it is addressed mainly to the questions graduate students ask, it is written as if it were being read by a student.
The Graduate School Handbook contains most of the policies and procedures of the Graduate School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
