Research Seminar in Social Demography

Sociology 830

1-3 credit hours, offered every term

This course is offered every term. Students in the Social Demography Program are expected to attend it continuously when in residence for 1-3 credits per term. Its objectives are to socialize students to be professional researchers and help students write research papers. It consists of the PSC Brownbag Seminar, the Student Research Forum, and group and individualized meetings with the instructor. Although students are enrolled for only 1 or 2 credits most of the time, they are required to register for full (3) credits at least once, in the term they complete and present a research paper. It is expected that students who use SOC 830 to fulfill their research seminar requirement in the Department of Sociology be enrolled in SOC 830 for at least two terms. [updated: 10/20/2004]
