Prerequisites Approval of Department Chairperson

Description

The capstone seminar is an intense culminating intellectual experience that creates the opportunity for students to review and apply their knowledge of the field through discussion of topics representative of the core areas of the discipline. Department faculty members will each attend a session of the class to facilitate a discussion in their area of expertise. In this course students will reflect on the field and will synthesize their knowledge of the core areas to select the theoretical perspective that best represents their point of view. Students will also assemble, finalize, and submit a portfolio of the work they have done during their tenure in the department. Student participation in class discussions, the content of the portfolio, and journal reflections on their experiences in the course will be the basis for the grade in the course. Open only to Sociology Majors in their senior year. Three lecture hours per week.
