sociology student at desk

From professional research to community services internships, students in sociology take advantage of dynamic opportunities in and out of the classroom. Students interested in campus leadership may join and become officers in the Student Sociological Association. Students excelling academically may join the sociology honor society, Alpha Kappa Delta, or receive departmental honors or scholarships. Many students complete a full-semester internship before graduating, gaining real-world experience in the workplace. All students take the capstone research seminar, which prepares them for professional research and writing. The sociology student lab and lounge offers a quiet space for reading, writing, student meetings and study groups, and use of computer workstations and printers. The Department of Sociology is committed to offering our students the opportunities they need to excel in their degree program and beyond
