2016-2017 Catalog > Undergraduate Studies > Undergraduate Minors > Social Science Research Minor
Coordinator: Kerry Strand
This minor can be combined with majors outside the department. It is designed to provide students in social sciences and fields that use social science research methods (such as business administration, communication arts, education and social work) with research skills that are useful in a wide variety of job settings, including human services, education, media, marketing, politics, social action and health-related organizations.
Students who complete the minor meet practicum requirements (SOC 482) either by completing an independent semester-long research project or by working on a collaborative, community-based research project with an agency in the Frederick community.
Through an integration of the liberal arts and the professions, Hood College provides an education that empowers students to use their hearts, minds and hands to meet personal, professional and global challenges and to lead purposeful lives of responsibility, leadership, service and civic engagement.
