AKD and Research Honors


Illinois Wesleyan University has one of the oldest Alpha Kappa Delta sociology honors societies in the country, and each year new members are inducted into the society. AKD  connects members into a community of sociology students, as well as provides various research and other opportunities and resources for students.


Sociology students also regularly pursue IWU Research Honors, a distinction available to students who spend an entire year working with a committee, which our alum say prepares them for Masters programs and graduate school.  Learn more about Research Honors opportunities here: https://www.iwu.edu/sociology-anthropology/HonorsResearchGuide.html
