Grace Mongeau '22
Double Major in Sociology and Writing and Rhetoric
"I’ve always had a love for mysteries and Sociology felt like a way to understand the world’s mysteries through structural analysis of society. Since coming to college, my reason to continue studying Sociology has changed. I am not so focused on solving mysteries anymore, but rather I am intrigued by the inequalities, hierarchies and power dynamics that exist in our societies. The entire Sociology faculty are amazingly supportive and I feel lucky to have such great professors who are always happy to talk to me about my interests, plans and questions. My Honors Project explores students with disabilities' experiences with hookup culture and has allowed me to apply my knowledge outside the classroom. After I graduate, I’ll be working as a Justice Policy Research Assistant at the Cutler Institute of Health and Social Policy in Maine. I’ll conduct research on services for system-involved (justice system, foster care, homelessness) people, including leading interviews, coding and analyzing data, compiling reports and writing grant applications."
