The Sociology Honors Program is intended to encourage and recognize superior scholarship. Participation in a departmental honors program offers the qualified student many benefits, including the opportunity to enroll in small seminars and graduate level courses and the opportunity to work on a one-to-one basis with faculty. Honors work also provides additional evidence of a student's ability to successfully complete graduate work.
Students who have attained sophomore standing and have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 and a GPA of 3.5 in Sociology are eligible to apply to this program. Additional information on the Sociology Honors Program can be obtained in the Undergraduate Office or from Dr. Nicole Cousin-Gossett (cgossett [at] umd.edu), Director of the Sociology Honors Program.
