SOAN 490 is the first course in the department's year-long thesis program, which, paired with SOAN 491, involves an original, social research project. In this capstone course students bring together their previous conceptual, theoretical, and empirical knowledge and skills in sociology and anthropology in order to propose and ultimately investigate a social-scientific research question. Much of the work is done independently while under the supervision of the thesis instructor.
SOAN 101, 102, 295 or 296, 298, and 299. Instructor permission required.
