Sociological Research Minor

The minor concentration in sociological research prepares students to carry out their own research by offering an introduction to the discipline, followed by an array of courses in quantitative and qualitative methods. Students learn about the gathering and preparation of data for analysis as well as a variety of techniques and methods for presenting information, arguments, and conclusions; 2 300-level courses allow students to see how these methods are used in practice.
