The Sociology Minor

The Sociology minor consists of 6 sociology courses for 18 hours. It begins with SOCY 101, which should be taken before the other courses in the minor. While SOCY 220 need not be the second course taken for the minor, the sociology department advises that this requirement be met early in the minor. 

 1. SOCY 101 Introductory Sociology

 2. SOCY 220 Elementary Statistics for Sociologists (If an equivalent statistics course, such as PSYC 227, MGSC 291, or STAT 201, or some other statistics course accepted by the sociology department is used to meet this requirement, then another sociology course will need to be taken to have a total of six sociology courses.

 3. One SOCY 500-level course

 4. Three other sociology courses at the 300, 400, or 500 level. SOCY 399 can be used to meet this requirement.
