Minor in Sociology of Work and Business

Purpose

This minor offers students the opportunity to certify an area of concentration that examines the social context within which business activities take place and the social processes that shape economic organizations. The minor encourages students to explore implications of trends in families, gender roles, race and ethnic relations, and other noneconomic areas of social life for understanding the organization and future prospects of business in America. For students in the Kelley School of Business, the minor documents completion of an integrated course of study on the impact of social trends on work and occupations. For students in the College of Arts and Sciences and other schools of the university, the minor certifies that they have combined the study of work and occupations with their major field of concentration. Students may not earn both a minor in sociology and a minor in sociology of work and business.

Requirements

The minor requires completion of 15 credit hours, including:

  1. Either S100, S110, or S101 (see advisor for approved sections of S101).
  2. Four courses, including at least 6 hours at the 300-400 level, from S210*, S215, S217, S302*, S305, S315*, S335, S338, S410, S450* (see advisor for approved sections of S410 and S450).
  3. At least 9 credit hours of the above courses must be taken in residence at the Bloomington campus.

*The department recommends that students who select the minor in sociology of work and business take these courses because of their immediate relevance to work and occupation. Students can substitute a 400-level seminar, with an appropriate topic, for one of the four courses, with the approval of the director of undergraduate studies.

Minor in Social Science and Medicine

Purpose

Allows students to study divergent aspects of the delivery and consumption of medical services, paying special attention to relevant social, historical, behavioral, and ethical contexts. The minor, which is organized in five concentrations, will facilitate and certify a greater understanding of the social context of health in our society than could be achieved in a less integrated course of study. This is achieved through a multidisciplinary approach to health issues that establishes a bridge between the social sciences and health professionals.

Requirements

The minor requires completion of 15 credit hours consisting of a minimum of 9 credits from approved College of Arts and Sciences courses, including:

  1. S101 Topics in Social Programs and Policies (SOC). Approved section: Medicine in America
  2. At least 6 additional credit hours of College courses within the social science and health concentration, of which 3 credit hours must be at 300-400 level.

An additional 6 credit hours, 3 credit hours of which must be at the 300-400 level; this may include up to 6 credit hours in approved courses offered outside the College, including up to 3 credit hours in IUPUI Medical Sociology and up to 3 credit hours in an IUB/IUPUI health-focused internship or field experience.

The five concentrations in the Social Science and Medicine minor include:

Health Care and Society

A social science­focused minor that examines social factors defining health status and approaches to care.

Social Changes in Treatment and Health Care Organization

Social perspectives on the delivery and evaluation of care.

Mental Illness and Society

Social and biological factors in mental health.

Social Factors in Community Health

Epidemiologic approaches to the study of health status and health needs of populations, rather than that of individuals.

Decision Making in Seeking and Providing Care
