We are now accepting applications for Sociology Honors. It is a double-semester program during which you conduct independent research and write a thesis under the supervision of a member of the Sociology Faculty. Honors students also attend a seminar, which meets twice weekly for 50 minutes. Attending the seminar will not increase your workload, but it will help you work more efficiently. Its purpose is to provide support, resources, and assistance relevant to successfully completing your thesis. The seminar also helps build close relationships between Honors students, creating a genuine community of young scholars.
Honors coursework consists of two 3 hour courses, SOC 679HA and SOC 679HB. SOC 679HA and SOC 679HB will count toward the 30 hours of Sociology coursework required for the major.
