Throughout this semester, we review key issues in the design of social research as students work on their independent projects. Specific activities in this semester of the course sequence include development of a research topic, exploring and reviewing relevant existing literature, applying for human subjects approval, putting together a faculty committee for the project, and completing first drafts of the literature review and methods sections of the research paper. Some students may begin data collection in the fall, but data collection and analysis, as well as the write-up and presentation of the final paper, are the main activities of the spring course. Students must take both courses in the sequence.

Class Description:
This course is the first of a two semester proseminar for honors students who major in sociology. The purpose is to help students develop their honors theses. We will take several steps: (1) think about ties between biography and research agendas by reading biographies of prominent scholars and linking them to their research, develop individual research questions, and write topic statements; (2) identify previous research on the chosen research topics, understand different styles of literature reviews and write literature reviews; (3) identify appropriate research methods, develop research tools and write "methods and data" sections (and clear human subjects approval where needed). This work will form the basis for the completion of each student's individual honors project in the second part of the proseminar in Spring of 2012. Each student will pursue her or his individual project while class work will guide you through the process.

Class Description:
This two-semester course sequence will guide honors Sociology students in the preparation of their senior project research papers. The first semester will focus on the development of the research project, including selection of a topic, articulating a researchable question, writing a literature review, choosing methods and data, and addressing human subjects concerns. A paper, to be completed by the end of the Fall semester will include a title and abstract; literature review, data source (including human subjects issues), and methods sections; and a bibliography. There will be relatively little lecture. Instead, student presentations and class discussions will focus on the stages of development of the research plan. We will discuss the issues and challenges students encounter as their work progresses. (During the second semester, students will execute their projects and prepare their final papers, including research findings and conclusions.)

Class Description:
The Senior Honors Proseminar I is the first of two courses designed for honors students majoring in sociology. Students in Sociology 4977 will finalize their research problems, develop appropriate methodologies and research instruments, secure human subjects approval, collect original data or identify secondary sources, and begin data analysis. The course will operate as a seminar, with students leading discussions and critiquing their peers. In the first (Fall) Senior Proseminar, we emphasize conceptualization and measurement. You will narrow your topic to a thesis-sized research question, secure the data and permissions necessary to proceed with your work, identify your thesis committee, and take your first cut at the analysis. In the second (Spring) Senior Proseminar, you will focus on writing and rewriting your thesis. You will unify its component parts into a coherent whole, defend the thesis before your committee, and consider outlets for publication or dissemination of your work.
