Minor Checklist

A minor in sociology requires earning a grade of C or better in a minimum of four 3000 or 4000-level courses (total of 12 credit hours).  Any courses in the department can be used for the minor. Follow your interests!  Find courses that complement your major; explore social issues that related to your interests and values.

A course can be counted towards either the major or the minor but cannot satisfy the requirements of both.
