Chernega, Jennifer Nargang; Osgood, Aurea K.
College Teaching, v60 n3 p85-86 2012
This commentary describes a two-week domestic travel study course for undergraduate sociology students designed to introduce students to the practice of social research and to the larger discipline of sociology. We arranged activities, presentations, and experiences in Chicago and Washington, DC. In this article, we outline the relevant parts of our travel study program and highlight benefits of our travel study program for students and for our major program.
