Graduate Education in Sociology: What Do We Need to Do Differently?
Simon, Rita J.
American Sociologist, v18 n1 p32-36 Spr 1987
Emphasizes that the heart of a graduate sociology curriculum should be research training, including practicums and internships. The curriculum should include coverage of basic areas with specialities based on faculty expertise and other strengths of the university. The selection of worthwhile research problems and how to communicate results are necessary skills that should be taught in graduate programs. (Author/DH)
