A new report by Duke University sociologist David E. Sargent shows that the most important topics for students of all ages are sociology, political science, history, and economics.
“Students tend to be interested in things that are more than their parents, so if you’re an undergrad, the topics they are most likely to want to take an interest in are social science, political sciences, history and economics,” said Sarget.
Sargon’s new report, “The Most Important Science Topics for Young People,” was published in the Journal of Sociology of Education.
“We asked them to rate the importance of each of these subjects for their students and we then compared their results to the results of the last five surveys we conducted on the same topic,” said David Sargets director of research and research associate.
The researchers used data from the 2014 American Sociological Association (ASA) Social Science Index (SSI), a nationally representative survey of 1,000 U.S. high school students.
They used this data to calculate students’ most important science topics and found that sociology, history or economics were the most significant topics among students ages 12-17.
Sociology, economics, and history were the top three most important fields for students.
Sociological Issues Sociology has emerged as one of the most popular and widely used of social sciences, Sargents research shows.
S&P Global Market Index, a market research company, ranked sociology the seventh most important in the 2013-14 academic year.
Sociologists and social scientists are known for being knowledgeable about issues related to social and political history, the study found.
Sociologist Michael Kimmel, professor of sociology at Duke University and the principal author of the study, said he wanted to make sure the research was broadly applicable to students across the United States.
“Social science research has been around for decades, and the way it is conducted is fairly consistent,” said Kimmel.
“But there are so many different questions that students and scholars are asked.
So we wanted to put together a comprehensive analysis of the science and get as broad of a picture as we could on the importance students were giving to the fields.”
The most important topic for students ages 9-17 was “political science” and it was rated “most important” for all students.
“What’s important to me is the ability to think critically about how politics and politics are represented and discussed in society,” said student Emma, who is a sociologist and political science major.
“I’m very interested in politics and political knowledge, and I feel that this area is really important for my generation.”
Social Science Study Students’ research interests can vary from the average student to the average professor, Sargon said.
For example, sociology and history are the most closely watched subjects for students in grades 9-12.
The sociological study also shows that students are most interested in sociology topics related to their race and ethnicity.
Sargeets findings also show that social science is the most frequently studied field in the classroom, but it’s not necessarily the most commonly studied in the workplace.
Students are also most interested when it comes to politics, which is not surprising, said Sargon.
“They don’t have the ability yet to engage in political debates.
They don’t understand the complexities of politics yet.
So they are interested in these things that most of us would not be,” Sargen said.
The research found that students who are interested primarily in social science tend to engage with their peers through group discussions, such as political debates or discussions of political issues, or the student might participate in other activities related to the topic.
Students who are more interested in social issues tend to make up more of the group and also make more political statements than those students who aren’t interested in the social sciences.
Sarger’s study also found that more social science majors engage in more political activity.
Southerners are more likely to attend political meetings, Sargeetts study found, but also more likely than non-southerners to be involved in politics.
Sagerts study also showed that students of color are more engaged in social justice activism, while white students are more focused on the social science and humanities fields.
In addition, students who study more social sciences tend to focus on more complex topics, such a political science course.
Sagers study found that social justice issues were more important to students of colour, with students of the color of their skin and students of other ethnicities more interested.
Students with lower socioeconomic status and/or lower grades are more involved in social studies and sociology and are more politically engaged, Sagerets study found in its summary.
SAGES SOCIOLOGY STUDY: Sargeett’s study focused on sociology students from all across the country, with a particular focus on the U. S. Department of Education, SAGEs Department of Sociological Sciences.
“The SAGES Sociological Studies Program is one of only a handful of sociology
