Graduate Workshop Series

student group meeting

Each year, the Sociology Department presents a Graduate Student Workshop Series. Topics are usually selected to appeal to graduate student concerns and interests, such as research, conference presentation and publication.

We meet in our newly remodeled Seminar Room (SS 330/338) from 3:30-5, and then adjourn for socializing. Here is a schedule of upcoming Fall 2017 Graduate Student Workshops:

  • 9/22/17 - The M.A. Thesis (and Professional Paper) - Professors Kuipers and Burfeind will discuss the thesis process, including choosing a committee, getting IRB approval, finding a topic, and generating data. Second year graduate students will talk about their topics and experiences thus far.
  • 11/3/17 - Faculty Research - Professors Rooks and Bunch will discuss their current research; each will give a mini-presentation on their projects, including describing their research questions, methods, results and what led them to their current project.
  • 12/1/17 - Presentations and Publishing: Ways to Bolster your CV - Professors Hollist and Winkler explore opportunities for students to showcase themselves, and to boost their credentials as they enter the job market, or continue on in school.
