Sociology Downloads

 

The possession of full knowledge does away with the need of trusting, while complete absence of knowledge makes trust evidently impossible.
~Georg Simmel




Sociology Club Meeting Students in Listening

The Sociology Department works closely with our students to help them make the most of their time here at Concord. Below you can find valuable information for current and prospective sociology students. Downloads in PDF format include advising materials, ASA citation information, and the required forms for Human Subjects Research. We also provide links to various Concord University Services and to professional organization of interest to sociologists.

 

Advising Materials


Each semester our majors meet with a faculty advisor to assess their progress and make a plan for the upcoming semester. Below are several important PDF documents that students need to have before coming to their advising appointment. The Advising Packet PDF walks you through the process of preparing a schedule and keeping track of your progress to graduation.

Research Tools


It can seem daunting for student's embarking on their first research project in college so it is important to not forget the basics. Concord University's J. Frank Marsh Library provides students with access to important academic databases and archives, allowing student researchers to be confident in their sources. Sociology students often find EBSCO and JSTOR particularly helpful. (Log on to MYCU and find the databases under the library tab.) If you need help with your writing, remember Concord's Tutoring Services is there to help.

Citation Help

From journal articles to online research, it is very important that material is cited correctly. Plagiarism, even if unintentional, is taken very seriously at Concord. In sociology ASA is the preferred citation format. For examples of how to cite different sources in ASA, download the Quick Tips for ASA Style PDF. Always check with your teacher to verify the citation format that they want you to use. Visit Purdue University's Online Writing Lab and EasyBib to learn how to cite work in MLA, APA, Chicago and other citation formats.

Human Subjects Research Board

For students who which to research human subjects outside of the classroom, Concord University's HSRB will help identify any ethical or safety concerns and in conversation with a faculty advisor, assist students in developing projects that meet the highest safety and ethical standards of social researchers. The following PDF forms must be completed before students begin any human subject research project.
