SOCI 350 - Senior Project

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 unit(s)

Students electing the Senior Project will complete a sociologically-informed creative project.  Working with a project advisor from the Sociology faculty, students will design a project that may take the form of a film, photo essay, collection of poems, children’s book, podcast, art installation, among other possibilities.  A Senior Project should include a written project statement that locates the project within its sociological context, and frames its objectives and components.  The statement may take various forms, such as an author’s statement, critical introduction, an analytical preface/postscript or discussion of a theoretical framework. 

The Senior Project is a year-long process that is worth half a unit in the fall (SOCI 350) and half a unit in the spring (SOCI 351).  Senior Project students are expected to submit an initial one page statement of intent in the spring of junior year, highlighting their academic preparation (such as prior coursework, creative work, or technical skills) for their specific senior project.  The format for delivering, archiving, or presenting the project, along with the specific components of the written project statement, will be determined in consultation with the project advisor.
