Gain experience and make intentional decisions!
As you navigate the second half of your undergraduate career, think about which elective Sociology courses you want to take to round out your intellectual development and mastery of the discipline--but don't forget about the three required courses! Required courses should be completed by the first semester of your senior year. Consider experiential learning through Project Community, SURO, or Intergroup Dialogue facilitation. Juniors are strongly encouraged to schedule an advising appointment before registering for the first semester of their senior year.
Students in their third year of study often use the winter semester to study abroad. Be sure to talk with the sociology advisor about your study abroad semester if you plan to take courses for your major while abroad.
It's time to start thinking about what you will do after college. The Career Center is an excellent resource for students at all stages of career exploration; you don't need to know what you want to do before you go to see a Career Center advisor or counselor. In fact, not knowing is the best reason to go!
The Career Center hosts a variety of career expos and information fairs to help you explore. The job fairs can be excellent places to find internships, as well.
