Sociological Autobiography


Students will have the chance to discuss & apply sociological concepts to personal experiences. Some topics students may choose, but are not limited to include: groups, culture, gender, race, family, education, religion, etc. Students will complete a paper discussing applicable concepts and making connections to oneself. How has society had an impact on your life? For example: How has your gender had an influence on your experiences? How has religion played a role in your life? Explain how the concepts you have selected combine to give you a unique perspective. Be sure to connect your own personal experience to larger structural and historical forces in society.

Note: It is imperative to explain how the concept connects to you . . . it is not strictly an overview of concepts.

Utilize at least 3 concepts, and one theory as discussed in class, and include in-text citations. The paper should be 3-4 pages in length, double-spaced, and be completed in 12-point font. Include a cover page and a reference page. Utilize APA Format–CITE ALL SOURCES. Henslin required, as well as any additional sources.

Introducing Concepts and/or theory: Henslin should be cited in-text. Concepts/theories should be introduced first (Paraphrased), cited (Henslin, Year) Pg. #’s for direct quotes, and then applied (How does this concept or theory connect to you?)

Possible Concepts/Theories to utilize and apply: Students may choose to utilize concepts from chapters not covered in lecture but are included in the Henslin text.
