They will be responsible for conducting one class presentation on one of the main areas of Sociology covered in the syllabus. As a co-requisite for the course, they will complete the Comprehensive Exam in Sociology. The course is designed to help students synthesize their knowledge in the major, reflect on how their sociological imagination has developed, and plan for their future as a sociologist. This course requires an approved IRB application.
