Applied Social Science Theory

MET SO 300

  • Social Inquiry II

Applied Social Science Theory introduces students to major authors and seminal works that continue to inform theory and research in social sciences. The focus is on reading primary source materials to examine not only the major conclusions of these authors, but the arguments they use to justify those conclusions. Effective Spring 2021, this course fulfills a single unit in each of the following BU Hub areas: Social Inquiry II, Critical Thinking, Research and Information Literacy.

This course may not be taken in conjunction with METSO203 or MET CJ300. Only one of these courses can be counted towards degree requirements.
