This course will count for the Quantitative Reasoning requirement in the General Education program, Education for Participation in the Global Community. Quantitative applications are widely used in sociology and in the social sciences more broadly. Quantitative applications are used to describe and predict social structures (e.g., the relationship between income and educational attainment, quality of life and geographic location, or school violence and neighborhood composition). This course provides students with skills to evaluate and interpret numerical data that will aid students in their future academic, personal, social, and professional development. Emphasis is placed on learning statistical techniques and methods to educate and train students to become critical consumers of information presented in the “life experience.”
