Peer Mentoring (BA/MA Sociology)
- A Peer Mentor is a current student in their second year, with good communication and organisational skills, who is keen to help a small group of incoming sociology students integrate seamlessly into the social and academic life at Corvinus University and that of the sociology department.
- Peer Mentoring begins in September with mentors contacting their mentees to organise an initial meeting to take place during induction week. Mentors will keep in touch throughout the semester, helping their mentees to find their way around campus and showing them how things work in the department.

Scientific Students’ Associations Conference (TDK)
In the sociology section, we invite papers that use sociological methods to investigate a social, economic problem or cultural phenomenon. The diversity of the discipline makes it a difficult undertaking to define the exact topic and method. In line with the research profile of the department, we invite papers on
– the study of a social problem of relevance to social policy (e.g. poverty, ethnic conflict, segregation, deviance, gender, elites, education,) – or
– critical analysis and/or empirical testing of an important sociological theory or approach
Papers using either qualitative (e.g. interviews) or quantitative (e.g. questionnaires) methods are welcome.
