The Sc.B. concentration in Social Analysis and Research provides both a conceptual and a working knowledge of the techniques for data collection and analysis used for social research in academic and non-academic environments. The centerpiece of the concentration is a rigorous and comprehensive collection of courses: (1) that develop an understanding of the principles underlying the processes of data collection and analysis; and (2) that train students in the application of advanced statistical techniques for data description and analysis. The concepts and skills learned in these courses are reinforced through engagement in applied research with Sociology faculty and/or internships with local organizations in the for profit and not-for-profit sectors. Concentrators also take courses that provide grounding in the theoretical approaches to social phenomena that are foundational to social research. Graduates develop an understanding of the concepts and processes that underlie the issues studied by sociologists and the analytic techniques that allow sociologists to understand social relations and individual behavior. Through this concentration, students develop the analytical skills that prepare them for a wide ranger of lives after graduation, including conventional careers such as program administration and evaluation in government and civil society. Our graduates also continue their formal education in a variety of post-graduate areas, including health sciences, statistics, and sociology. The Sc.B concentration in Social Analysis and Research consists of a total of 12-13 courses, including a capstone project.
