Research projects are required in various Sociology classes. This guide is meant to serve as a basis for research, not as a comprehensive guide to all aspects of sociology. It's meant to be a research starter for the student.
In the Introduction to Sociology class especially, students are expected to complete a final project on any subfield within sociology. Most of the students are interested in contemporary research findings in the following areas:
1. Collective behavior
2. Sociology of religion (You may want to consult the Current Issues Guide, Religion Page)
3. Criminal justice/social justice issues( mainly the question of racial justice) (You may want to consult on the Criminal Justice Guide or African-American History Guide Antiracism resources)
4. Sociology of the family (You may want to consult on the Social Work Guide and the Family and Marriage page)
(NOTE: These ideas are ONLY supposed to jog your mind. It's not a limitations on the parameters of the assignment. Please discuss all topic matters with your professor.)
