A re-conceptualized professional graduate program in sociology is presented as a higher education response to emergent macrosocial drivers. The interconnected drivers include social change, the globalized workplace, shifts in economic infrastructures (a move to a knowledge-based economy), changing lifestyles, the quest for intercultural competencies, and technological adaptability. The curriculum of the re-conceptualized graduate program lays a foundation for solving emerging problems engendered by these drivers. These problems require insights and skills dealing with explanation, negotiation, persuasion, and other forms of intense human interaction. The pedagogy and delivery through information technology allow and promote anytime and anywhere access to the substance of the academic discipline and to the teaching and learning process.
