Graduate Student Mentors

Graduate student mentors are available for meetings with undergraduate students to discuss their work or questions undergraduate students might have about sociology as a discipline, graduate school, careers, etc. When considering a senior thesis topic, students may also find it helpful to meet with a graduate student specializing in that area of research.

Meetings with graduate student mentors are by appointment only. You may email a mentor directly, or email to be scheduled according to mentor availability.
