The general sociology major requires a minimum of 39 sociology credits. Students may choose an option in criminology, inequality and social justice, or in rural and environmental change.  All sociology majors must complete a required core and four courses from the major content list, in order to insure broad exposure to the field of sociology. No more than 60 sociology credits may count for graduation. All students are required to take 4 core courses (Introduction to Sociology, Social Statistics, Sociological Research Methods, and Classical Sociological Theory.)  Students also must take four Major Content courses (two must be upper-division) and an upper-division writing course in Sociology. See the Degree Checklist for a more complete list of courses and requirements.

In addition to meeting these departmental requirements, students must meet all University wide requirements, as specified in the catalog. These include: completing 120 credits, meeting the General Education requirements including the Upper-division Writing Proficiency Assessment, and taking 39 credits of upper-division course work. See the Academic Policies and Procedures section of the undergraduate catalog for other requirements.
