SOCI 418 - Faculty-Led Research

(3cr) Independent Research allows students of junior status and above who have excelled in their studies to undertake a semester-long piece of research and writing under the supervision of a member of the sociology department. Students should contact a member of the sociology staff, providing a one-page outline of their proposed research and writing. The supervisor must approve the topic. Once the topic is approved, the student should contact the chair of the Department of Sociology, Criminology, and Criminal Justice and indicate their intention of enrolling in SOCI 418. Before granting permission to enroll, the chair will consider the value and scope of the project, along with the workload implications for the supervisor. Independent study is not normally approved if other electives are available to the student. Prerequisites: SOCI 203 , a 2.5 cumulative GPA, and at least junior status.
