Senior Symposium, Spring 2004

Dr. Tammy LewisOn May 5, 2004, the Department of Sociology & Anthropology hosted its first annual Senior Research Symposium. At the event, students presented the results of research that they conducted over the course of the capstone Senior Seminar in Sociology & Anthropology during the Spring 2004 semester. Dr. Tammy Lewis led that seminar and introduced the program at the Symposium.

Students draft their proposals in the Fall Research Methodology I course, and carry out the research in their senior year during the Spring capstone seminar. The Senior Symposium, held every May, provides those students with a professional opportunity to gain experience in presenting data to an academic community, a skill that is highly valued in graduate programs of study.
