All final projects must conform to the following general guidelines
The written report must be an original piece of work produced entirely by yourself for the purpose
of this course. This is an individual assignment and should therefore be completed on your own.
The written report must be typed and double-spaced using 12 point Times New Roman font and
standard margins. Number each page.
The written report must be between 1800 and 2000 words. This corresponds to approximately 6-7
pages but may vary slightly. Marks will be deducted for papers that are too short or too long.
All projects require that you incorporate academic research:
o You must use the ASA (American Sociological Association) or APA (American
Psychological Association) referencing style. This means that you will use within-text
citation and include a complete reference list at the end of the paper.
o Academic sources include academic books and peer-reviewed journal articles from
social science disciplines. Websites and popular media are not scholarly sources and are
inappropriate sources of support for an argument.
You must include a title page that includes an interesting title your full name your student number
the course code and section the instructor s name and the date submitted. There should be no
photographs or illustrations on the cover page.
Staple your paper prior to submission. Do not submit the paper in a report cover or duotang. If you
do it will be discarded and not returned to you.
All students will be assessed using the same grading rubric. It is included in the final page of this
assignment outline. Please make sure you are familiar with this grading rubric prior to starting your
assignment.
A note on writing
Your ability to communicate your ideas clearly and effectively is important. Writing style constitutes a
significant part of your grade on this assignment (see rubric). Make sure you edit your paper several
times; each part of the paper should be easy to read flow logically and be free of spelling or
grammatical errors. You can also make an appointment at the Writing Centre
(www.ryerson.ca/writingcentre) to have a tutor look over your work. I do not edit papers for students.
A note on academic integrity
Any suspected cases of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Academic Integrity Office. Please
make sure you take down all source information when conducting research and learn how to properly
reference material. The Academic Integrity Office has information to help students avoid a charge of
academic dishonesty. Please visit their website at http://www.ryerson.ca/academicintegrity/students
for more information.
Assignment Options
1. Sociological analysis of a moment in your family history
Select a specific event in your family history preferably one that you know enough about (or can
easily learn more about) and one you feel is reasonably significant. This could be an event in the
recent past (that involved you personally) or something that took place decades ago to another
family member. Think about events such as immigration experiences employment experiences
participation in social movements unexpected social challenges family disruption or other
significant or unique social experiences. The purpose of this assignment is to offer an in-depth
sociological analysis of this event. You should spend no more than 250-300 words of the paper
explaining the event. Then prepare a comprehensive sociological analysis of this event which
connects the experiences of the individual to the broader social context. Your analysis must use
sociological theory to make sense of this event.
2. Labour market inequality
Select a career that you are interested in pursuing in the future. For this project you will investigate
the ways in which social inequality shapes the opportunities and experiences of individuals entering
and working in this occupation. In your paper consider how various dimensions of social identity
(including gender identity race sexual orientation age ability and social class) shape the
experiences of those entering and advancing in this career. Use sociological concepts and theories to
analyze your findings.
3. Community Engaged Learning project
Participate in a Community Engaged Learning opportunity. There are several opportunities to
become involved with organizations in the community which will be presented to you in the first two
weeks of class. Volunteering will require that you take part in a brief interview and training session
and then commit to the organization for the duration of the term. You will write a critical reflection
of your experience working with this organization. A critical reflection is not a general summary of
your experiences; rather you must connect observations you make in your work to the sociological
theory and research that is discussed in the course. Your reflection must be organized around one
central idea or argument so that the overall project is a cohesive paper. You are strongly encouraged
to speak with the instructor about your paper ideas.
More information about the opportunities will be provided in the first two weeks of the term. You
must sign up at the beginning of term to participate in this option. Failure to fulfill your obligation to
the organization may adversely impact your grade on the assignment (up to 20% of the assignment
grade at the discretion of the instructor). If circumstances arise which make you unable to fulfill your
obligation you must get in touch with the instructor immediately.
