SOC 495 Senior Practicum

The Senior Practicum provides students with an opportunity to learn how to conduct sociological research. Research teams of faculty, students, and staff members from community organizations use their academic and professional skills to address a research need related to the central theme of "Working for justice, Working for peace." Students are placed in these organizations during the first semester (SOC 400 Internship) and then conduct independent research at the request of the organization during the second semester senior year. The Senior Practicum is designed to build on students' knowledge and skills acquired in program coursework, but is also open to students who successfully complete the inquiry sequence of courses for the Sociology major. Successful completion of all assignments is required to pass the course. Prerequisites: SOC 350, SOC 351, SOC 352, and SOC 400. Liberal Arts Core/University Requirements Designation: DSINQ, WI. (3)
