This course is a student driven independent study based on 39 hours of attendance and participation in university and community pro-seminars and workshops. This course will also provide a forum for guest speakers and for presentation and discussion of matters students will encounter in future graduate studies or later work as professional sociologists. Topics covered will include grant writing, scholarship application processes and proposals, graduate school application policies, publishing, teaching, and career development. Graded on a pass/fail basis, the course will result in the creation of a professionalization portfolio demonstrating the learning competences the student acquired through the course.
