I didn't realize until I left Saint Michael's just how valuable the education I received in the Sociology Department truly is. As a Sociology graduate student I am continually relying on the foundation that I received at St. Mike's. Several undergraduate courses have prepared me for graduate level work. Core courses, such as Sociological Theory, have given me a strong basis for extended study while the Research Methods class I took has helped me pursue large scale research projects, like the one I’m currently working on for my thesis.
In general, my undergraduate studies in St. Mike's Sociology program helped teach me how to critically evaluate sociological material as well as develop my own ideas and research interests. As I pursue my Ph.D. in Sociology, I am continually thankful for the education that I received from the Sociology Department at Saint Michael’s and the preparation that education has given me to further my career.
