Sociology Planning a Program of Study Since there are many alternative ways to plan a program, some of which may require careful attention to specific major requirements, students should consult with the School of Social Sciences Undergraduate Student Affairs to design an appropriate program of study. Students who select one of the School majors in their freshman year might begin by taking the one-digit courses required by their major and one of the mathematics sequences listed under Part A of the School requirements. It is a good idea to take these courses early since they include fundamental concepts that will be widely applicable in more advanced courses. In addition, the lower-division writing requirement of the general education requirement category I should be completed during the first year.

April 8th, For a lot of applicants, figuring out who to ask for a letter of recommendation will be one of the most stressful aspects of graduate school applications.
Once you know who to ask, check out our guide on how to ensure you get the best recommendation possible.
Who to ask for a letter of recommendation? Deciding who to ask for a letter of recommendation requires knowing what universities want out of said letters. Giving them what they want will go a long way towards getting you accepted. Admissions committees want specific examples.
They read hundreds if not thousands of letters every year that go on and on about how a student is motivated, passionate, hard working, etc. I was her thesis advisor for two years and worked with [applicant] for 10 hours a week throughout the school year.
How specifically is the applicant proved they are technically ready for graduate school e. He used Matlab and Python to elucidate statistical inference outcomes on a project with X amount of data that required knowledge of Y economic techniques.
I have no reservations about their desire to obtain a PhD. Each only has three reviews: Mechanic A Review 1: I went in for an oil change. Needed to have my oil changed so I made an appointment in advance. Good prices on oil changes if you go every 5, miles. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes.
My starter needed to be replaced. They found me a good deal on a used one and installed it the same day and provided a 90 day warranty even though it was used. They were very honest and courteous and managed to do a fix and clutch replacement, which saved me thousands of dollars. Highly trustworthy and knowledgeable.
The whole thing took less than an hour and they were still cheaper than their competitor. Which one would you rather go to, if they both cost the same?
The same applies to graduate letters of recommendation. You want letters that can speak to all the things you need to do well in order to be successful. One letter might be from your advisor with whom you did a research project your senior year. Your third letter could be a professor in a different department if you double majored, or a professor you took multiple classes with but who was not your advisor.
This is difficult of course, so spreading it out as much as possible between departments and programs should be your goal. Just make sure that the places you cull from are apposite to your intended program.
If you could choose any three recommenders, the best would be three letters from tenured faculty at three separate universities.
Can you get into a program not following this rule?In my last post I discussed evidence that suggests grammar teaching does not lead to an improvement in children’s writing. Although it seems implausible that grammar teaching would not be positively correlated with writing outcomes, there’s a lot of evidence that is strongly suggestive that what I prefer to believe may not in fact actually be true.
I have been searching for information and advice for an undergraduate student who is writing a letter of recommendation for a Professor who has been nominated for a teaching award.
Any advice or tips for a letter with this relationship is greatly appreciated. The message from some of those who claim to support Pope Francis' position, appears to be the Catholics should simultaneously believe that the teaching of Pope St John Paul II--and all his predecessors--remains correct, and also that it is no longer applicable in concrete situations.
