Student Writing Guide

Appalachian State University and the Department of Sociology expect their students to write well. Therefore, we have developed some helpful resources to assist in your writing while taking sociology courses. To find what you need, start with our page of tips and essential links that will help you through your academic career as an ASU student and sociology major. Much of this website addresses the common problems of writing within our discipline, including citation styles and types of research-specific writing. You will also find some general information on how to proofread your papers and links to outside sources provided by ASU's library and the ASU Writing Center.

However, if these links do not answer your questions, please speak with your instructor because she/he is more likely to understand your specific assignments and will be the one who will grade your work.
