As the most affordable school on this sociology programs ranking, UM Morris already has a distinct advantage in attracting applicants. But UM's strong focus on research makes it a top choice for any student regardless of budgetary concerns. The most prominent example of this focus is the Morris Academic Partnership program, which gives exceptional undergrads the opportunity to pursue research under the advisement of a faculty member (and with the benefit of a stipend). In addition, the school encourages sociology majors to attend conferences, contribute to faculty papers, and even perform first-hand research of their own. Few other universities have such a research-friendly environment for sociology - especially not at UM Morris's incredibly affordable price.
