SOCY3001 Application Information

Thank you for your interest in SOCY3001 Research Internship

This course gives students the opportunity to work closely with a member of academic staff in the disciplines of Sociology or Criminology on a research project in a field of interest. Students will develop real-world research skills and get a sense of how high-level academic research is conducted. The project, to be negotiated with a supervisor, will most often be related to work already underway by the faculty member, and the student will be offered the opportunity to join the research team.

Enrolment in the course requires

  1. the agreement of a supervisor and
  2. the completion of an application form (by June 30th).

The usual way to find a supervisor is to contact an academic in Sociology (or Criminology) who works in the area you are interested in and ask if they are available to supervise in SOCY3001. This might be someone whose course(s) you enjoyed, for example. They may want you to provide information such as your transcript and they may want to meet you to discuss your areas of interest.

You need to organise supervision during Semester 1 and not leave it to the last minute! If this process is proving difficult please contact the course convenor ( who will be able to assist.
