Events, Spring 2009
The Sociology Club's What is Sociology? event was held in the seminar room, with panelists Professors Carolina Bank Muñoz and Naomi Braine giving brief summaries of how they arrived at their current positions in the field of sociology and answering questions from undergraduate sociology students. Professors Tamara Mose Brown and Timothy Shortell also added to the discussion along with Tom Buechele, Graduate Teaching Fellow in the Sociology Department.
Among the subjects discussed were: finding a topic of study to focus on, preparing for GREs, applying to grad school, taking time off from school to work on applied research, the importance of working on writing skills before entering graduate school, and career opportunities for M.A. degree holders versus Ph.D.s.
