Baylor University's undergraduate scholarly publication, The Pulse, promotes academic writing among undergraduate students at Baylor. Students with exceptional writing and research are given the chance to have their work featured in the publication, whether for their classes or for their Honors or University Scholars theses. The Pulse also provides opportunities for students to gain experience in the publication process.

Graduates of the Sociology program often continue to pursue their studies through graduate school. Others apply what they have learned in the classroom to social work, teaching or occupations in government agencies.
