Sociology students have many opportunities to conduct original research, either in collaboration with faculty or independently, with faculty supervision.  Students can sign up for SOC401. Research credits with the faculty mentor of their choice.  We also support student participation at local conferences such as the Pacific Sociological Association (PSA). 


Students presenting research at PSA:

  • Elizabeth Dietz:
    What Does Race Have to Do With It? A Study of Racial Conflict Theory

  • Nicole Miller:
    Neighborhood Crime: Correlation Between Neighborhood Upkeep and Crime Rates

  • Taylor Reynolds
    Household Food Security: How Education Levels and Marital Status Affect this Crisis
