Hello everyone! My name is Kylie May, and I am pursuing a Sociology Ph.D. in order to become a professor and researcher. I recently graduated with High Distinction from IUB with a BA in Sociology and a Minor in Criminal Justice. I also have experience with media and journalism. My primary research interests often circulate back to inequality and social class; however, I'm interested in a variety of topics. For instance, my mixed-methods undergraduate Honors Thesis titled A Culture of Care and Capital: How Undergraduates Relate Social Class, Mental Health, and Academic Success concerned topics like inequality, culture, and barriers to resources. For some fun facts about myself, I enjoy playing video games in my spare time!
For students, should you ever need assistance or help with anything regarding graduate school or the like, please feel free to contact me! Another great resource is the IU Sociology Club (previously known as S.A.A.S) which has many resources available as well as a community to support you if you're looking to join an organization!
