College of Arts & Sciences

In addition to meeting the standards and requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, degree candidates must complete department requirements in sociology and related fields for a total of 36 credits. With good reason, students may modify the major program in consultation with a department adviser. Introduction to Sociology (SOCI 1101) is normally the first course taken by majors, but late transfers can substitute Social Problems and Solutions (SOCI 2601) or Sociology of the Family (SOCI 2211) in its place.
