Following my wide-ranging research on professional colleges and universities that are offering an honors program in Sociology, I have decided to apply for the Honors Transfer program at El Camino College. For it is the reputation of El Camino College of that convinced me to write you an application for the Honors Transfer Program.
The major I intend to pursue at El Camino College is Sociology owing to its relevance for the better comprehension of a contemporary social problem. I am of the view that Sociology is a subject that enhances the critical thinking and develops the ability to gauge shreds of the evidence whether qualitatively or quantitatively. Moreover, this subject does not put any constraint on the person who pursues it as a major rather it permits the person to follow his/her interests. In addition, I have kept myself involved in activities that allow me to learn the behavior of the people, their cultural patterns, their cultural priorities. I am presently working as a server at wedding venues and this has helped me a lot in engaging different people with different perceptions. Further, this job has helped me to learn about the roles that people play in society. I have had the experience of engaging people with different age groups. I thoroughly assessed how society is influenced by gay marriages, marriage between the people of different races and marriages between older and younger people.
I have also served in a number of projects and programs coupled with volunteer work and a few of those programs and project which helped me to broaden my mental horizon are as follows.
This program was all about college prep. and leadership and helped me a lot to become a team player. During the project EGO, I learned the importance of teamwork and helped me to develop a strong bonding with other team members. The best thing about the project EGO was it developed leadership qualities in my personality. Albeit, the whole project was focused on teamwork but it taught me professionalism and helped to cope with some real-life experiences such as improving myself to accomplish what I have planned.
Another program is another program which I took to help students so they could get transferred to 4-year university programs. The program was focused upon helping those students who were disadvantaged. The program helped me to encourage and motivate other people. In addition, I experienced from Puente program that best satisfaction which one can experience is through helping and motivating people in their hard times. Moreover, it was Puente program which taught me that helping others is the best contribution one can make for the betterment of society.
I have worked with Surfrider Foundation as a volunteer. Surfrider Foundation helps cleaning up beaches to guard the environment and aquatic life. This particular experience helped to learn that it is not only the people which contribute to the betterment of society but also the environment we live as it influences the thinking patterns and behaviors of the people to some extent.
The reason why I chose Sociology as a major is, it coincides my nature. Sociology is a broad field and a person with a broad mental horizon and open mind would choose to opt this subject as a major. I am of the view that my accomplishments and work experience precisely is in line with the subject. Sociology is a subject which demands you to enjoy around the people which I experienced and learned during my engagement with different projects and programs. In addition, I have completed all the prior requirements to get myself enrolled in the program at El Camino College.
