SURE is open to Sociology majors and Criminal Justice majors who have completed SOC 3751: “Introduction to Research Methods” with a grade of B or higher. Though preference for the program is given to seniors, juniors who have completed SOC 3751 with a B or higher may also apply.
Students will take SOC 4870: “Advanced Research” during their senior Winter Quarter to build on their statistical and methodological skills. Students will be mentored by Sociology/Criminal Justice faculty as they work toward completing a formal paper to be presented in round table paper or poster sessions at the annual Pacific Sociological Association meetings. Students will also present their papers or posters at the annual Erickson Research Conference at SPU at the end of Spring Quarter.
