Sociology

Alpha Kappa Delta Board Members

“...born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world,--a world which yields him no self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.”

– W.E.B. Du Bois

—Hello Alpha Kappa Delta Sociology Honor Society members! I am your chapter President in my third year in the graduate program.  My focus is on Sex and Gender and Culture.

Hello, I’m Bobby Keo. Currently I’m in my second/final year as a graduate student here at CSUN in the Sociology department. I graduated from UCLA in 2011 receiving my B.A. in Sociology with a minor in socio-cultural Anthropology. My career interest are varied as I am open to teaching at the CC level, pursuing a Ph.D. and teaching at the 4-year university level, or staying in my current field as a research consultant. Being from San Diego I am a huge Chargers fan, enjoy watching the Padres, and of course always cheer on the Bruins and Matadors.

Graduate Advisor: Elizabeth Bogumil

I am a graduate student interested in urban planning, quality of life and open space usage.  Ultimately, my plan is to get a PhD in Sociology or Urban Planning and work as a professor or quality of life consultant for cities and planned communities. In AKD I am responsible for the graduate student outreach and advisement, fliers and assorted other contributions. Personally, I enjoy urban exploring, photography, documentaries, blogging and volunteering. Feel free to reach out to me for any questions, comments, or suggestions.
