Prerequisite: SOA101 OR SOA 113; and SOA 200 (may be taken simultaneously), and SOA 211; SOA Majors and Minors only

General Education requirement: Oral Skills

Empirical observation as the basis for anthropological and sociological analysis. What we see and hear - and by extension, what we overlook or choose to ignore - guides our understanding of social life. Fundamental to anthropology and sociology is therefore the systematic design, collection and analysis of direct and indirect observations, which become data for developing new concepts and theories about the social world. The course covers both quantitative and qualitative approaches to research design and analysis with the ultimate goal of helping students become competent at conducting and critiquing social research.
