to many sociology is
To many, Sociology is:
  • A social science
  • An organized school of thought directed toward making social change.
  • The intellectual link between individuals, groups, and society as well as the relationships between the three.
  • Is really broad! We can almost study anything you can think of sociologically.
  • Well practiced at SIUE with world renown scholars, major research and teaching awardees, & authors of dozens of books and articles.
  • And much more – ask us!

theory methods and statistics 301 302 303
Theory, Methods, and Statistics (301,302, & 303)
  • You must earn a C or better in each of these courses.
  • 302 and 303 can only be taken after successful completion of 301.
  • 495 and 433 can only be taken after successful completion of all three of the above. You must earn at least a C in these courses.
  • Logic: How can one develop a capstone research project or integrative internship experience/paper without a solid grounding in theory, methods, and statistics, the foundations of social science! 495 and 433 products require you to bring the substance of these courses to your project.
general sociology and the employment relations concentration
General Sociology and the Employment Relations Concentration
  • Employment Relations is more applied (directed toward palpable and specific real world issues in a number of areas, especially work/labor). Two additional courses are required (338 and 431). The capstone experience is an internship accompanied by a scholarly paper.
  • General Sociology has two less required courses (but with more electives) with a research project within 495 as a capstone experience.
