Sociology students research a range of topics that impact local and global communities. During senior year, you’ll engage in an independent Capstone project that encourages you to apply sociological perspectives to your area of interest. Recent projects include:
- Social Attitudes Toward Immigrants Reflected Through Immigration Policy
- A Sociological Exploration of Black Women’s Health Disparities
- Military Veterans and the Challenges of Serving
- They Must Be Bad Kids! Racial and Ethnic Disproportionality in School Discipline
- “We’re here, we’re queer, we will not live in fear!”: A Content Analysis Exploring Gender Disparity in the Public Reappropriation of LGBTQ+ Slurs
Through student-led organizations like the Social Justice Society, you can lead discussions, engage in activism, and organize events and fundraisers. You’ll also have opportunities to gain real-world experience through internships. Sociology students have interned at nursing homes, human resource departments, child welfare agencies, police departments, schools, hospital research departments, non profit agencies, and girls empowerment groups.
