Prospective Graduate Students
As part of the department of Sociology and Anthropology students experience a graduate culture that is unique to the University of Guelph.
Due in part to intimate seminar sizes, Sociology and Anthropology graduate students have the opportunity to become actively involved in and outside of the classroom with fellow graduate students and faculty. In addition to building strong working relationships with their advisory committees, as part of the Sociology and Anthropology department graduate students are encouraged to interact with faculty throughout the department. By doing so, graduate students are often able to assist faculty with their research projects while at the same time developing their own research plans.
Graduate students are also encouraged to participate in Sociology and Anthropology conferences. In the past our graduate students have presented their work in several large conferences across Canada including (insert conferences). In addition, for over a decade now Sociology and Anthropology graduate students have proudly represented the department in its annual Engage student conference. Celebrating the diversity of vitality of student research the Engage conference offers graduate students a chance to present their research and network with other graduate students.
Whether you are planning on a career in academia or not, having published work is a valuable attribute to any CV or resume. As part of the Sociology and Anthropology department graduate students are encouraged to actively work towards publishing their own work as well as collaborating with faculty members. See Faculty/Graduate Student Publications.
In past years our graduate students have represented the Sociology and Anthropology department proudly, publishing in books as well as Canadian and international journals such as the Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Canadian Review of Social Policy, Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality, Journal of Women in Culture and Society and the American Anthropologist.
