Texas A&M Summer REU Program

The Texas A&M Sociology department invites students to apply to the Summer 2018 “Research Institute in Sociology and Social Inequality” REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) site.

This 8-week summer program is an exciting opportunity for up to 10 undergraduates to gain invaluable research experience with close guidance from a faculty mentor. Texas A&M faculty will provide world-class opportunities to engage in research on the causes and consequences of social inequality.

Students will gain hands-on training in a range of research methods, including interviewing, experiments, and survey analysis. In addition, Texas A&M Sociology boasts four research centers that will support the students’ work: the Texas Federal Statistical Research Data Center; the Race and Ethnic Studies Institute; the Stuart J. Hysom Social Psychology Laboratory; and the Howard B. Kaplan Laboratory for Social Science Research.
