Are you highly motivated and interested in working closely with Sociology faculty to conduct your own research? Do you have a minimum cumulative UW GPA of 3.30 (or close to it) and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 in all UW sociology courses (or close to it)?
If so, we invite you to attend our Sociology Honors Program information session on Friday, May 20 in Savery Hall 245, from 12:30-2:00pm.
We will talk about some of the reasons why students choose to pursue honors and what some of the many benefits of the honors experience can be for you–academically and personally. We will give you an overview of the admission requirements, and you will have an opportunity to meet and talk with Professor Hedy Lee, who is our Faculty Honors Director, as well as talking to current honors students about why they chose to pursue honors and what their experiences in the program have been like.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Sociology Honors Program is an academically rigorous junior or senior year to complement the major, designed for students who would like closer intellectual contact with faculty, as well as students interested in graduate work in sociology or in related professional fields. The Honors curriculum trains students to design and execute their own research for senior theses through small seminars, independent study with faculty, and an honors statistics course. Successful graduates of the Honors Program are awarded the bachelor’s degree “With Honors.”
Sociology Honors students also have access to all the resources of the University Honors Program. For more information about the program and admission requirements, click here: https://www.soc.washington.edu/undergraduate/soc-honors-program
Applications for the Sociology Honors Program are due on July 18th, 2016. If you are considering applying but are not sure whether the program is a good fit for you, please come to the information session on Friday, May 20.
