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.
|SOC 100||Introduction to Sociology||4|
|SOC 200||Introduction to Sociological Theory||3|
|SOC 280||Intro to Social Statistics 1||4|
|At least two Sociology courses at the 300- or 400-level||6|
|Elective Sociology hours as needed to fill the 18 hour requirement||3-6|
If a statistics course is taken outside the Department of Sociology to fulfill this requirement, that course does not count toward the 18 hours of Sociology courses.
