Honors: What is gained?

The Honors Program helps students develop advanced knowledge of social issues, in addition to enhancing sociology students' analytical, research, and communication skills. Students who desire rapid advancement in research development or who seek careers in graduate studies will find the honors experience invaluable. Successful honors students have gained experience in research, writing, and public speaking that normally comes only through graduate study or years on the job.

SOCI 481 fulfills the capstone requirement for the Sociology major, for students under University Catalog year 2015 to present.

Sociology students who successfully complete the two honors seminars with a grade point average of 3.5 or above will receive the honors designation in sociology when they graduate.
