SOC 497 Community Engagement Experience

This senior-level seminar is an opportunity to learn by “doing sociology.” Students apply the sociological skills developed in previous courses to contemporary issues. Making connections between the local and global and appreciating diverse perspectives for achieving social justice become important analytical skills needed when working in community engagement settings. With guidance from an academic advisor, students select the path that best meets their career goals: an internship placement, a research experience, or a teaching apprenticeship. Class sessions are spent sharing experiences and discussing sociological insights in a seminar format. This course is a required course for the sociology major and open to sociology minors. Prerequisites: SOC 251, SOC 350, and SOC 351. Liberal Arts Core/University Requirements Designation: EXP, DSINQ. (3)
