Ocampo Polytechnic University of the Philippines camilleocampo@ojooo.com/ +639358484642 SCOPE: SCOPE This paper aims to contribute to the existing studies on the logic of practice of Philippine sociology by examining the undergraduate theses of sociology students in two universities in Metro Manila from the year 2003-2012. PowerPoint Presentation:  Focus was on the thematic, theoretical, and methodological frameworks utilized by the students. Previous literatures on the subject matter focused on the works of more seasoned sociologists. There is not much research pertaining to practices of undergraduate students of sociology in the Philippines. Methodology: Methodology This study conducted a thematic content analysis of sociology undergraduate theses in two universities in Metro Manila namely: the University of the Philippines Diliman and the Polytechnic University of the Philippines Manila, from the year 2003 to 2012. These universities were chosen because in Metro Manila these are the universities which have a sociology undergraduate program. As a supplement to the content analysis, face-to-face interviews with thesis advisers were conducted and questionnaires were sent out to students. Sampling: Sampling Both universities do not have organized archives of undergraduate theses unlike for the master’s and doctoral dissertations. Undergraduate theses are kept and stored by individual thesis advisers. Thus, retrieval is a problem. Polytechnic University of the Philippines = 33 theses from 2003-2011 (Group thesis) University of the Philippines Diliman = 25 theses from 2006-2012 (Individual thesis) Results: Results Summary of findings: Summary of findings Most theses from the two universities revolves around the subject of social organization The category of Social Organization and Social Change are standard subject matters of inquiry of sociologists in the Philippines. Lacking preference towards theoretical work There is a multidisciplinary approach on studies being pursued by the students. Students have tendencies to look for topics which interests them but at the same time easier to finish. Summary of findings: Summary of findings Quantification is not a popular choice among the undergraduate students. Most of the theses explored the qualitative paradigm coupled within the frameworks of symbolic interactionist perspectives and critical theories. Recommendations: Recommendations It can practically help in reviewing research priorities of existing Sociology departments in the two universities. The process of research mentoring during the early years of the students leading to the thesis writing phase could help improve the selection of topics, theories, and methodologies of the students. Recommendations: Recommendations Sociology departments may also consider relieving students of other subjects while they are undergoing thesis production so as they can focus their attention to the latter. Corollarily, Sociology departments from the two universities may look into the propriety of putting up an organized archival practice for these undergraduate theses as these are good starting points of researches.
