SocialEyes

Undergraduate Academic Journal

In a world that is getting more complex and global, it is important to step aside and look at our everyday life from an entirely new perspective. Developing questions about our lives that we never had time to ask, trying to find answers to those questions, and sharing the new discoveries (both theoretical and empirical) are what SocialEyes aims to do. We do not require expertise in Sociological theories or research methods, but we require your sociological imagination.

SocialEyes publish one issue every end of the academic year and it gets read by all students and professors in Sociology department, deans and provosts in Arts & Science school, and globally. As our issues get published online as in print, some of our articles get translated for undergraduate journals of other universities.
