UIUC Sociology is very proud of our thriving Student Ambassador Program! (Scroll down to view our student cohorts.)
Sociology Ambassadors work with the department in a variety of ways, as representatives like Peer Advisors, who meet and communicate with current and prospective Sociology students to discuss courses, their experience in Sociology, their academic path, and more. Upon successful completion of SOC 199: Career Development, students can become an Ambassador by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org . Students have two Ambassador experience options:
SOC 199: Ambassador Program
This course includes weekly sessions to train in major/minor/departmental policies/resources as well as leadership development programming from university units. Leadership, communication, teamwork, mentoring and problem-solving skills will also acquired. Students serve one “office hour” per week in the advising office reception and participate in departmental events to build skills and engage.
SOC 390 Independent Study- Section Title: Leadership and Engagement
This is a specific independent study section for students who have taken SOC 199: Career Development and also at least one semester of SOC 199: Ambassador Program. This course is for students who would like to design their own experience or project. It requires approval from the Undergraduate Academic Advisor, a completed SOC 390 Independent Study contract, and attendance at the weekly SOC 199: Ambassador Program meetings, unless otherwise approved.
