Are you interested in research? How about seeing what your peers have been up to in their classes this year? Then you should come to…

The UW Undergraduate Research Symposium! THIS FRIDAY, May 19th! 


THIS Friday is the UW Undergraduate Research Symposium where a set of our very own sociology undergraduates are presenting posters and giving talks at sessions! Scroll down to see all the students involved and learn more about their projects! The symposium is a great place to learn how sociology students are conducting research in our department. Come say hi, get some inspiration, and consider showing your own research next year! You can view the full schedule and more details here.

The Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is a chance for undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. The Symposium provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The Symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited guests.
