Skye Miner ('12) Sociology Major

Portrait of Skye Miner, Gonzaga Alumni 2012

Skye Miner graduated from Gonzaga University in 2012 with a BA in Sociology and a minor in Women's and Gender Studies. The following fall she enrolled at Brandeis University for a one-year master's program in Sociology. After graduating with her MA in May 2013, Skye moved to Montréal to begin her PhD in Sociology at McGill University. Currently, she is working on her dissertation, “Not Bought but Sold: Navigating Canada’s Assisted Human Reproduction Act Abroad and at Home.” Her dissertation examines how the criminalization of paid egg donation affects Canadians’ use of donor eggs within a global market of fertility care. She is also continuing her research that she began at Gonzaga with Dr. Andrea Bertotti Metoyer.

“The Gonzaga Sociology Department provided me with strong methodological and theoretical training that served to be an essential foundation for my graduate school work. My participation in the undergraduate research group and position as a research assistant for Dr. Andrea Bertotti Metoyer gave me invaluable hands-on experience. These opportunities gave me both the confidence and training to perform my own research in graduate school.”
