Sociology Honors Program

The honors program in sociology is designed for outstanding sociology majors who wish additional challenge and recognition in pursuing scholarly or service work in an area of sociology. Students in the program enroll in SOCI 4550 , SOCI 4551  in consecutive semesters. In consultation with the student, the departmental chairperson will appoint a faculty advisor and two faculty reviewers to comprise an honors committee that will approve, supervise, and evaluate the work of the student. Under the guidance of this committee, the student will undertake extensive reading, research, or service activities resulting in the writing of an honors paper. The honors paper will be presented to, and orally defended before, the honors committee. To qualify for the program, a student must be a senior, have the approval of the dept chair, and have a minimum cumulative and major 3.5 GPA.
