Why take a course in social networks? Reason #743: to turn the tables and track the powerful people tracking you.

Greg LaPointe demonstrates that the University of Maine at Augusta is teaching fewer of its students in a physical classroom and more of them online.  See also this recent treatment in the Bangor Daily News: http://bangordailynews.com/2014/02/05/news/bangor/students-from-virginia-to-micronesia-part-of-growing-group-taking-online-courses-from-ums/

What do we know about quality of learning experiences? More is more, but is more better?

What you don't know CAN be used against you.

See this Washington Post artcle -- http://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/page/national/how-the-nsa-is-tracking-people-right-now/634/ -- to discover how a branch of sociology called social network analysis (specifically, a 2-mode co-location matrix) is being used by the U.S. military to track U.S. citizens. This is why social science research education should be part of a well-rounded college degree.  Knowledge is power, and power should not be concentrated in too few hands.

Get your degree rounded (and learn THIS VERY TECHNIQUE while you're at it) with our very own Social Networks course, SOC 375, offered Spring 2014 at the University of Maine at Augusta -- http://uma.edu/.
