So you are doing history and sociology, and are good at math!
Great, it should be useful to you. You can take as a minor specialization to work on statistics. A good mathematical statistician can work marvels out from facts and basic statistics.
And most people dont understand this sorts of math, thus - it is quite often simply not done. Or done not properly.
Also, I have understood many graduate papers are laying there not finished for years, even getting destroyed, simply by the gradual students do have the material, but lacks skills in advanced statistical maths....
Btw, knowing what you can do with good statistics, you can plan your inquiry better.
Hey, you could probably make a decent living by helping these gradual students out with this statistical maths... Remember, most of your collegeaues in history, sociology, religion, librarians, languages, arent good at maths.
