Sociology Honors Thesis

SOCIOLOGY 4901

The Honors Thesis program is a two-semester sequence of coursework that aids students in developing, designing, executing, and producing original research within the field of sociology. Successful completion of this sequence and the thesis product is required for a student to be eligible for Latin Honors in Sociology. In the fall term, students will participate in a seminar-style course centered upon research design and obtaining needed approvals for carrying out their proposed project. In the spring term, students will be supervised by faculty mentors in an independent study as they carry out their research, analyze their findings, construct the thesis document, and defend their work in a formal defense. Students may be required to share their work in additional venues, such as departmental symposiums or institution-wide undergraduate research events. Successful completion of both terms of coursework and completion of a defendable thesis paper satisfies the capstone requirement for the sociology major. Additionally, students may count three of the six-credit sequence's hours toward the major's upper-level requirements. Open to sociology majors only. Students who are interested in the thesis program should contact the department's Director of Undergraduate Studies and/or the Academic Coordinator - as well as their planned faculty mentor(s) - prior to their planned enrollment. Prerequisite: consent of instructor and faculty mentor(s).
