It is extremely easy to get into any major here at Ripon. The advisers and professors here get to know you very well, and will do everything they can to help you. I came to college undecided on a major, and the help I received from my academic advisers steered me in the right direction. I am an English major, and all I had to do was declare the major. There were no prerequisites of any sort.

I love my Major! The communication department is one of the most fantastic departments here. They force you to think critically and indefinitely encourage help from other students. I am happy where I am.

I found no problems in the admissions process for my Sociology major. The application process in applying to the school was simple requiring a short essay about myself and where I plan to take my major. After that is was just a matter of enrolling for my classes. My advisor provided the necessary guidance in selecting courses and it was pretty much smooth sailing from there onward.

As a sociology major, I plan to do an internship. Internships are a great way to prepare a person for what lies ahead in their career both mentally and physically. I do not anticipate having any problems finding an internship position in my area becasue Sociology is a broad field that incompasses social work, counseling and working with hospitals. My time working at an Assisted Living facility has given my some experience in the areas of providing assistance, activities and counseling to the elderly. Helping others is what I enjoy doing and that job has given me a head start into my career.

At Ripon College the Sociology program is fun and the teachers highly knowledgable. Sociolgy gets to the heart of the matter of why people behave and act the way they do, which makes it easier to help them in fields of Social work and Counseling. The maority of teachers at Ripon College have a Ph.D and are excellent at generating intrigue in their particular subject. I feel compelled to take another subject by the same teacher each semester they teach. The workload is very doable especialy as a mom and having to juggle house, kid and schoolwork. Ripon College no matter what subject you take be it Art, Drama or Science, ensures that each student is able to face the challenges the world throws their way.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
