Minor in Sociology

A minor in sociology is an excellent supplement to a major in other fields such as secondary education, philosophy, communication arts, business, nursing, and engineering. People in most careers can benefit from a deeper understanding of human behavior and social organization. In addition, the sociological insight is an excellent supplement to those studying other areas in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, such as history, psychology, and political science.

A student developing a minor in sociology with a major in another discipline must complete 21 hours of sociology courses, including SOC 100. A minimum of 12 hours should be in courses numbered 300 or above. Sociology courses may also be used in conjunction with courses from other disciplines to form a minor area of study. Such a program should be developed with the advice of the sociology faculty and approved by the chair of the student's major department.
