SOC 498/499: Independent Study

Using your free elective credits to participate in experiential learning is a great way to put classroom learning into practical experience. While engaged in the supportive environment of an internship, you can test career goals, enhance professional skills, develop self-reliance, self-esteem, and responsibility. Furthermore, these opportunities encourage networking with professionals and will provide increased marketability for employment after graduation.

Below are your two options for earning experiential credits. Please meet with your academic advisor before making a final decision regarding which option is best for you.
