Research and Publication Opportunities


Research is a cornerstone of the Sociology curriculum and we encourage all of our students to engage in a project that inspires and motivates them to learn more. Here at SMU there are four ways for you to get involved in research as a Sociology major.

    1. Research with Departmental Distinction    

    2. Individual Research     

    3. Student and Faculty Research

    4. Student Collaborative Research

In addition to conducting research we want all of our students to have the opportunity to receive public acknowledgement by having the chance to submit their final work for possible publication.
