Aggie's Story

What good experience did you have in sociology?

A good experience that I had in sociology is the opportunity to conduct research and become more knowledge about the research processes, which helped me immensely when going into grad school.

How did it help you get into or prepare you for grad school?

The program helped me so much with my transition to graduate school. Having the opportunity to do research at an undergraduate level was extremely beneficial. The connections I made with the professors and the connections they have helped me get into a grad school. The material that was taught was thorough and has helped me with grad courses now.

What financial package did you get WVU? A full tuition remission and a teaching assistantship, right?

Yeah, I received a Graduate Teaching Assistantship with a tuition wavier and 9-month stipend.


Why would you recommend sociology at SFU?

The small school setting offers you a chance to really get to know your professors, and them to know you. The professors are really passionate about the material of the courses that they are teaching, making the courses interesting and very informative. The professors are extremely willing to help and get you involved, as long as you want it.
