Supervision in Sociology:
The following guidelines have been set up by the Sociology Undergraduate Education Committee regarding supervisions:
- Students should expect to receive 6 to 8 supervisions for each paper.
- Students will be expected to produce a minimum of 4 essays instead of being required to write 6 essays. While still holding the stipulated 6 supervisions, individual supervisors can decide to use some supervision sessions to read and discuss an article, ask students to present on a topic, or find other ways to address the topic in ways that are stimulating and provide a learning experience for students.
- Supervisions should not start later than week 3 of Michaelmas term.
- Queries and concerns relating to supervisions should be addressed by students, in the first instance to their Director of Studies; secondly to the Course Organiser; thirdly to the Director of Sociology Undergraduate Education: Dr Manali Desai.
