The SOC 4800 Sociology Capstone course provides 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. Additionally, students gain tangible and marketable research, data analytical, and communication skills, including:

  • working with nationally-representative datasets (e.g., General Social Survey, National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health)
  • developing programming skills such as data cleaning, variable creation, and statistical analysis of relationships using statistical software
    (Excel, SPSS)
  • graphically¬†presenting research findings using Powerpoint software, and
  • presenting research at local, regional, or national undergraduate research conferences.
