Choosing Your Topic
Your final project topic should be something that you find sociologically interesting. This could be anything! It must be relatively specific—for example, “my final project topic is on gender” is not specific enough. With this example, what is it about gender that you want to explore and write about? Make sure you are clear on what you are discussing and that you analyze the topic in-depth and include several examples (more guiding questions and things to consider are below). Students are welcome, and even encouraged, to submit your final project topics to me in advance if you wish to get feedback before working on it.
Your topic should relate to at least one (1) of the following areas that we covered (or will cover) this semester: sociological theory, culture, socialization and social interaction, social institutions, inequality and stratification, social class, race/ethnicity, sex, gender, and sexuality, crime, deviance, and social control, social movements and social change, or media and technology. It is completely possible for your topics to consider or relate to multiple areas.
Essay (4-6 pages double-spaced)
Students also have the standard option of submitting a final essay on the topic of their choice, as long as it is sociological in nature and connects to the course material. Students can submit their topics in advance to get feedback or suggestions from the course instructor.
The paper itself must:
● Be 4-6 pages in length (or approximately 1,200-1,800 words)
● Be written in 12-pt font, double-spaced, and in a readable font
● Include references only if it’s a research paper or if you are
quoting/paraphrasing someone else’s work. If it’s simply an essay or reflection paper, you do not necessarily need to use references except when citing definitions, quotes, or other information from outside sources.
○ If you choose more of a research paper route, you should use the BMCC library’s databases to find the articles you need. News articles are okay to use, but they should be in addition to peer-reviewed sources.
● Contain a references/works cited section at the end of the paper (if applicable). NOTE: This section DOES NOT COUNT towards the page total.
○ For example, a document that is 5 pages total with a title page and 1 page of references would still be a 3 page paper. This is too short. You must have 4-6 full pages (approximately 1,200-1,800 words) of text.
