Graduate Student Symposium
As graduate students in sociology, we engage in understanding social problems through theoretical and practical perspectives. In particular the globalizing state of labor is something relevant to every college graduate.
The Graduate Student Symposium is an annual event that serves to teach students outside sociology more about our discipline, as well as provided a more in-depth focus for sociology majors.
