SOCI 181B: Sociology Capstone – How I Became a Sociology Major

This assignment is an account of your college career.  The paper can be up to 5 pages long.

First, how did you choose sociology as a major?  What is the story you can tell about becoming a sociology major. Which might include a significant course and/or professor, or an accident because your favorite major would not accept you.

Secondly, what were the difficulties that you encountered on a daily and yearly basis such as family pressures, course registration, requirements to earn money, qualifications for financial aid, which may have extended the time to completion of your college education?  As you think of this topic, you might compare yourself and your experiences with those of your parent(s) or your peers.

Thirdly, choose two courses and highlight how the professor and the material helped you learn something new about the world, and/or some new skills.

Fourthly, how have you changed since you first entered college, and how [if at all] has studying sociology contributed to that change?  To help you think about how you have changed, consider comparing yourself with people who went to high school with you and who remain in your home town.  You can also consider how different you are from your parents because of your education and majoring in sociology.

In writing this assignment, you do not need to follow the sequence of questions. You can arrange the story as seems best.
