The Sociology-Anthropology program offers a program leading to two Master's degrees, one in Sociology, and the other in Anthropology. It is designed to enhance and develop general theoretical knowledge and understandings of students in Sociology and Anthropology.
It is not intended to replace instructions from your professors and TAs. In all cases follow course-specific assignment instructions, and consult your TA or professor if you have questions. You must cite all sources you use—not only for direct quotations, but also for data, for facts that are not common knowledge, and very importantly for ideas that are not your own.
The UW policy on academic honest explains what plagiarism is, but also the consequences for students found to have committed it: For theory application papers, this would include mention of the theory or argument you are applying and the case or empirical phenomenon to which you are applying it.
Introductions and conclusions are important: A good introduction summarizes what the author does in the paper, and sets up "motivates" the analytical problem or question. It is sometimes referred to as a "roadmap" for the paper. Some writers find it effective to present an interesting or controversial statement or a quote in the introduction to gain the reader's attention.
However, you should make certain that the quote or information is actually relevant to your thesis your main argument! A good conclusion almost always restates the argument and the evidence brought to bear.
However, you might address unresolved issues, why we should care about the topic of the paper, directions for future research, etc.
Once you have completed the paper, you should revisit the introduction and conclusion to make sure that they "match" each other, and that they reflect the argument you make in the body of the paper. Most analytical sociology assignments should not rely upon personal anecdotes, experiences, or opinions as "data" to make an argument.
This varies by assignment—for example, some ask you to incorporate personal experiences and opinions. If you are unsure, check with your instructor or TA.
It is considered appropriate to use subject headers in longer analytical papers, as it helps guide the reader and organize your argument. Unless you are instructed otherwise, it can be helpful to write analytical papers in first person using "I statements":Thesis title: From rebellion to de facto statehood: International and transnational sources of the transformation of the Kurdish national liberation movement in Iraq into the Kurdish regional government.
