Sociology Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Sociology Department is pleased to announce our second annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Wednesday, June 5th 12-2pm in the Rachel Carson Red Room. This event will feature Sociology students who have conducted exceptional research projects throughout their undergraduate career at UCSC, and especially leading up to graduation. If you are considering getting involved in research or are planning on doing a senior thesis, this is a great opportunity to learn more about undergraduate research and start thinking about your own research ideas. 

Refreshments will be provided at this fun, informative and Sociology-filled event. Please join us to learn all about the fascinating research being done by our undergraduates!
