CWU SOCIOLOGY DEPARTMENT     Sociology Diversity Statement
Students will be encouraged to:
  • see society as concrete day-to-day behavior of human beings;
  • grasp the relationship between history, society and the individual's life;
  • realize that social patterns are tools for the accomplishment of human ends and not necessarily unalterable facts of life; and
  • develop the ability to critically analyze social phenomena.
    • 2018 Fall- Tentative Schedule

      • Credits are determined by using a minimum of 40 hours of approved field experience for each credit hour you want to earn.  Clock hours may include time spent to complete the work phase and the academic phase (term paper/project, journal or log, progress reports, assigned readings, final report etc.) of the field experience.
