Students who are interested in studying Sociology, but are not able to fulfill the requirements of the full major should consider doing a Sociology Minor.
To earn a Sociology Minor, students must complete two “core” Sociology courses
SOC 1010 Intro to Sociology
SOC 3111 Research Methods - or - SOC 3140 Social Theory
Plus an additional 12 credit hours of Sociology electives, 9 of which have to be upper-division courses (3000-level or higher).
