Sociology majors take a sequence of courses that prepare them for the Sociology Seminar. In the Methods of Social Research (Sociology 302) course, for example, majors are assisted in the development of a research proposal. The seminar provides you with the opportunity to complete this proposed research project. The seminar concludes with an awards ceremony and the individuals with the best research projects are recognized.
