Senior honors thesis

A student interested in pursuing a senior honors thesis in sociology must (a) be a member of the College of Arts & Sciences Honors program, and (b) meet the credit hour and GPA requirements (which are found at http://louisville.edu/honors/Enrichment-opportunities/senior-honors-theses).

Once a student has determined eligibility, he/she should contact Dr. Jonetta Weber jonettaweber@louisville.edu who will assist you in identifying an appropriate sociology faculty member to supervise the thesis. Once the topic and faculty member are chosen, students must submit a Thesis Initiation Form. This form, including detailed instructions, along with information related to thesis committee members, the thesis oral examination, etc. are available at http://louisville.edu/honors/Enrichment-opportunities/senior-honors-theses

During the semester in which the student plans to conduct the thesis research/writing, he/she must register for SOC 498 or 499. SOC 498 is a one-credit hour course which should be taken only if the student has already completed some work toward what will become their thesis project. For example, a student who wrote a lengthy research paper in a 400-level sociology class and wishes to expand on that paper for a thesis project would take SOC 498. However, if a student has done no prior work related to the thesis project, he/she should register for SOC 499.

For additional information, contact Dr. Weber at jonettaweber@louisville.edu or (502) 852-8028.
