This is the capstone course for students taking the joint emphasis in the sociology and anthropology concentration. Students design original research projects grounded in recent social theory and a review of relevant literatures on their topics; they collect and analyze data related to the topics, and each student produces a significant original thesis. Seminars also examine select theoretical issues in contemporary sociology and anthropology, with the specific focus depending on the instructor. The joint seminar may also be taken by students pursuing the sociology or anthropology emphasis. Prerequisites: SOCI 101 with a grade of C or higher, ANTH 102 with a grade of C or higher, SOCI 201 or SOAN 204, SOCI 250 or SOAN 210, and ANTH 211 or SOAN 211, or permission of instructor. (J)
