Students pursuing the major in Sociology complete the program by engaging in an internship that offers supervised work experience relevant to sociology within selected organizations and agencies.
Sociology Majors complete a series of core courses (SOC 3343 or SOC 3353 and SOC 3373 or SOC 3393) and upon approval of the internship coordinator engage in an internship experience. Provided as part of the COLFA Signature Experience, internships are selected and should be relevant to previous coursework. A maximum of 6 semester credit hours may be earned through this internship. Students are expected to engage in 150 hours of on-site, internship work experience. Students then write an internship paper under the supervision of the internship coordinator. This paper should apply sociological concepts and methodologies to the assessment of the internship site.
