Sociology Honors Seminar Application

The Sociology Honors Seminar will be unlike any class you have taken here.  It is an interactive seminar, with the collective focus on helping each student produce sociological research and knowledge. In this class, students do not sit back as consumers of sociological knowledge, but everyone is required to lean in and devise a research project. It’s an exciting and challenging process, one that requires creativity and self-discipline, but you are supported by the instructor, the seminar and an additional faculty mentor.  Over the course of two semesters, each student will develop and write an original research project that will serve as the senior sociology honors thesis.

Who should take this class?  Any Sociology senior with a strong GPA, a curiosity about the social world, and anyone wishing to engage in original research that will provide the type of writing sample that many graduate programs require as part of the admissions process.

Interested in seeing what this year’s Sociology Honors Seminar students have produced?  Come to HSH 201 on April 30 at 2pm, for the presentations.

Please join us for a very special event designed for LHC majors, for all students thinking about an LHC major, or those who are simply interested in these issues of contemporary relevance and importance.

Professor Capron will speak about vaccines, public health, the law, and public policy. What are the salient issues in these often heated debates, what is understood and misunderstood, and how can, or should, the law inform public debates?

Please join us, and please feel free to bring guests who might like to hear our distinguished USC faculty colleague speak about these issues.
