Define “Sociological”

What exactly does “sociological” mean? Good question.

To answer that, we’re going to rely on a blurb from the American Sociological Association:

What is Sociology?

Sociology is:
* the study of society
* a social science involving the study of the social lives of people, groups, and societies
* the study of our behavior as social beings, covering everything from the analysis of short contacts between anonymous individuals on the street to the study of global social processes
* the scientific study of social aggregations, the entities through which humans move throughout their lives
* an overarching unification of all studies of humankind, including history, psychology, and economics

Of course, you don’t have to be a sociology major to conduct “sociological” research. If the above description fits your field of study and research, then the Symposium is for you!¬† Past Symposiums have included social science, science, and humanities scholars. We encourage presenters from a wide-range of academic interests to share their research on “sociological” topics.

Fields that “do sociological” research include:¬†Sociology, Psychology, Ethnic Studies, Anthropology, Public Health, Rhetoric, English, Political Science, Political Economy, Economics, Business, Environmental Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, and more.

Questions? Don’t be shy.¬† Feel free to contact us.
