Minor in Sociology
The Sociology minor is intended for students with a declared major in another department, but who wish to broaden their educational experience in a formally designated program of study. The minor program may be of particular interest to students in Nursing and Health Professions, the School of Business, the School of Education and Human Development, the School of Social Work, Women and Gender Studies, and non-social-science disciplines in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
The minimum number of credits (exclusive of the University's Core curriculum) required for the minor: 18.
Twelve credit hours are required courses; the remainder are sociology electives.
Required courses: SOC 100, SOC 210, SOC 300, and SOC 301 or SOC 307.
Sociology electives: Each student minoring in sociology elects a minimum of two upper-division courses from those offered by the Sociology Program. These courses are chosen in consultation with the student's minor advisor in Sociology to reflect pre-professional or academic interests.
Supplementary information is published each semester by the Sociology Program Office to assist students in planning their course schedules. The information includes a summary of major courses, listings and descriptions of special courses, and general information for majors.
