SOC 400 Senior Seminar

A capstone course required for senior sociology majors designed to provide the opportunity to engage in an intensive examination of a topic of broad and enduring social and sociological significance. The topic will be of sufficient breadth to raise theoretical, methodological, and substantive issues, some of which may have been already encountered in other courses. The seminar format and the senior status of its members will provide a context in which these issues can be examined in greater depth and integrated into a more developed and coherent sociological perspective through extensive reading and writing. The seminar format also demands that students assume greater responsibilities for their own learning and that of their fellow members.
