The Department of Sociology (DOS) teaching philosophy calls for integrating students’ learning experience with civic engagement and scholarly pursuits. The DOS Undergraduate and Graduate Internship Program encourages students to explore our region and prepares our graduates to work as well-trained, publicly engaged professionals whose activities benefit the region and the country. With this goal in mind we give our graduates hands-on experience in research and grant development in the Nevada Test Site Project, Sex Industry Studies, Nevada Problem Gamblers Research, Urban Development Initiative, Aging and Death Studies, Sociology of Architecture Group, Nevada E-health Project, Community Action Research, and other areas affecting the quality of life in the Southwest.
