Field Research

Starting as early as their 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 with many also joining their faculty mentors’ ongoing research projects.

In addition to the opportunities presented through coursework, many students regularly participate in the Geneva Collaborative Internship program.
