For students taking a different Capstone course, other presentation options for students to present their project will be considered, with the approval of the Certificate Advisor.
Students may apply for other courses to count toward the Certificate and should check eligibility of the topic in SOC 402 toward the certificate, by seeking the approval of the Certificate Advisor.
Any course outside of SOC 415: Applied Research Internship that is being used to satisfy the capstone or research internship course must be signed off by the Certificate Advisor. Students are advised to get approval before commencing the capstone or internship.

Linguistics courses used towards meeting the ★3 introductory overview course in social science methodology cannot also be used towards meeting other course requirements for this certificate.
