Honors Program

Doug Downey

Welcome to the Honors Program in the Department of Sociology. I invite you to experience the excitement of our discipline by planning challenging coursework (honors contract) or by becoming involved with research (honors thesis or research with a faculty member). The department has a long history of providing excellent honors opportunities and facilitating students' successful competition for research scholarships and awards. I hope you will contact me to learn more about Honors in the Department of Sociology.
