Sociology Snippets – September 26, 2017

Hello Sociology Majors & Minors!

Welcome back! For those of you who are new to the Sociology major or minor, I am Professor Pascoe, the Undergraduate Program Director in the Sociology Department. Every two weeks or so I send out Sociology Snippets, a brief newsletter of interesting events and opportunities for Sociology majors and minors. If you have any items of interest you’d like me to share, feel free to send them my way. This week we have information about the newly formed Sociology Club and some research opportunities.

Have a great day and Go Ducks!

Have you ever wondered about the music that infants hear at home? Are you interested in the visual objects that infants see and learn about every day? Are you curious about early language learning and the tools we use to study it?

Dr. Caitlin Fausey is looking for undergraduate students to work as Research Assistants in the Learning Lab. This is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in a psychology research setting.

We have multiple on-going projects, examining the sights and sounds that infants encounter in their everyday lives and how those encounters help infants build knowledge about the world.

RA positions are open to students in all fields and of all levels of experience.

You must be able to commit 10 hours per week to working in the Learning Lab.
