SOCY 4900 Internship in Applied Sociology

(Prior to Fall 2010, this course was known as SOC 19.3.
The information below might still reflect the old course numbers. Bracketed numbers, if any, are the old course numbers. Learn more...)

1 hour lecture, 6 hours supervised fieldwork; 3 credits

Supervised internships in organizations in the private and public sector. Development of research and related skills in the study of formal organizations, group dynamics and leadership, urban planning, decision making, and market and evaluation research. Students will be responsible for required readings, a diary of field experiences and observations, and a term paper. (Students may elect to complete either one or two semesters, but 4900 is not required prior to 4901. Only one internship course, either 4900 or 4901, may count towards the requirement that majors complete five advanced electives in Sociology.)

Prerequisite: at least three courses in sociology numbered 2000 or higher and permission of the chairperson.
