Twenty students put on their thinking "Capstone"s during 2018 Poster Session
Sociology 4800 Capstone offers opportunities for students to integrate knowledge from previous sociology courses, develop research skills to answer sociological questions, understand and become engaged with the research process, and help envision advanced study and job opportunities after graduation. Near the end of the semester, students graphically present their research findings at local, regional, or national undergraduate research conferences.
We want to thank our students, faculty, and staff for contributing to the 2018 Capstone Research Poster Presentations. Special thanks go to Assistant Professor Kei Nomaguchi (Capstone Instructor) and Senior Lecturer & Director of Undergraduate Studies Margaret Weinberger who helped Dr. Nomaguchi organize the event.
