Minor: Sociology

Sociology Minors are required to complete 18-hours (generally 6 classes) in the program.  No more than 3-hours of SOC 4970-Special Studies in Sociology may be included in the 18-hour requirement for the sociology minor.  As part of the 18 hours for the minor, students must complete the following:

  • SOC 1010-Introductory Sociology (3-hour course)
    NOTE: If you have already received transfer credit for SOC 1010 from another institution by the time you declare a minor, you may be exempt from taking this course in the department; however, in this case you must take a 3-credit Sociology course at any level to make up the required number of credit hours.
  • Minors should also complete 6-hours (normally 2 courses) at the 4000 or 5000 level.  The remaining 9-hours (normally 3 courses) can be taken at any level.

All courses must be taken for graded credit and must completed with at least a “C” or better.
