Sociology majors are encouraged to apply their knowledge outside of the classroom and participating in field research is a popular and useful educational component. Starting as early as the introductory courses, students are given opportunities to conduct field work through research methods classes and several electives. Sociology majors also have the option to do research within the senior practicum.
In addition to the opportunities presented through coursework, many students regularly participate in the Geneva Collaborative Internship program as well.
