Department of Sociology and Anthropology
Meredith Dye, program coordinator
The major consists of 34 hours of sociology, at least 25 of which must be from upper-division courses. Required courses include SOC 1010 , SOC 3040 , SOC 3050 , SOC 3060 , and SOC 4980 . Students must receive at least a C in each required course. Additionally, students must complete 3 hours emphasizing institutions and the sociological imagination and 3 hours of critical perspectives in sociology (see below). Ideally students should take SOC 3040 , SOC 3050 , and SOC 3060 early in the academic program, but no later than the junior year and prior to enrolling in SOC 4980 which should be completed during the senior year. In consultation with the student’s advisor, the remaining 12 hours of electives may be organized into an emphasis. Possible emphases include, but are not limited to, social inequalities, deviance and social control, work and family, and health and aging. Students are also required to complete two minors for the B.S. degree.
In order to graduate, all students must complete, with the approval of their advisors, the General Education requirements .
