Faculty in the Department of Sociology are committed to guiding our students in making the most out of their Sociology Major. Please make an appointment with our Undergraduate Advisor, Dr. Helen Potts, to discuss course options that focus on your particular interests. Junior and Senior majors are encouraged to explore opportunities for deeper engagement, such as undergraduate research opportunities, internships, the Sociology capstone experience (Applied Research and Careers in Sociology), and directed "Special Problem" courses under the supervision of a faculty member. Students interested in developing their career readiness to apply data and methodological skills should consider enhancing their resumes by completing the Applied Sociology and Career Readiness Certificate.
