Involvement Opportunities

Regardless of your major, one of the best things students can do to help them stand out is get involved! Getting involved on campus and in the community helps build your network, develop professional skills, and makes your resume more attractive to potential employers, scholarship committees, etc.

  • Join the Psych/Soc/SW hub in Canvas: This is a Canvas shell where you can learn about opportunities, events, ask/answer questions, and get general reminders/information from faculty and advisors in Psychology, Sociology, and Social Work. If you’re not already a member, send an email to Brittany Warren or Lisa Muñoz and we will add you!

  • Conference and workshop opportunities: Sociology students have joined faculty at conferences such as the Iowa Sociological Association annual conference for undergraduate research and presentations.

  • Honors Projects and Independent Studies: Have an interest in a particular topic that you want to explore? Work one-on-one with a faculty member to research that topic and earn college credit.

  • Field Experience and Service Learning: Want to learn more about community organizations and connect what you’re learning to the work those organizations do? Consider working with other students and faculty to create a service learning opportunity —locally, state-wide, or even a short-term study-abroad opportunity.
