SOC* K278 - Community Research °


3 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisite: Any 100-level anthropology, economics, history, political science, psychology, or sociology course; or permission of the instructor.
Students volunteer with a community organization in a town of their choice, carrying out activities that will have some concrete result in addressing a social problem and meeting the needs of the community. Students may locate their own placement∞, with the instructor’s approval, or work in a program of community research the instructor has developed with a local agency. Much of the work takes place at off-campus sites in the region. Students will gain experience in one or more primary research methods used by sociologists: participant observation, interviews, survey research, content analysis, or the use of existing documents. Students meet in a seminar a number of times to reflect on their experiences.
