Minor in Sociology

A minor in sociology requires that students learn the basic theoretical and methodological approaches in sociology. Students must also learn about the substance of sociology in some depth and are thus required to take at least two sociology courses at an advanced level and a total of at least 18 hours of sociology courses. The course work must include the requirements listed below.
