Notes:


  1. Major in Sociology: Twelve courses are required: SC 101 , SC 102 , SC 342 , SC 355 , SC 401 , three courses at the SC 360-499 level (one of which must be a 400-level seminar), and four electives.
  2. Introduction to Statistical Methods and Data Analysis (ST 110 ) or an equivalent statistics course (e.g., EC 220 ) is required for the major. Introduction to Computers with Software Applications (CS 111 ) is strongly recommended. ST 110  and CS 111  can be used to fulfill the mathematics/natural science core requirements.
  3. Interdisciplinary Major: Students wishing to combine sociology with some other field for an interdisciplinary major must take SC 101 , SC 102 , SC 342 , SC 355 , and four sociology electives, two of which must be SC 360-499 level (and one of those must be a 400-level seminar).

The combination of biology/sociology is an excellent program of study for students interested in medical school, graduate study in medical sociology, or a career in the health field.

  1. Only SC 100-level courses may be used to satisfy the social science core requirement.
  2. Prerequisites may be waived for any course upon receiving written permission of the instructor and the department chair.
  3. Students must complete the diversity core requirement through a designated diversity core, major, or elective course (see Diversity Core Requirement  under Curriculum and Policies).
