Sociology Curriculum

For the sociology course offerings, 1000-level courses provide a comprehensive descriptive overview at the introductory level, 2000-level courses provide an in-depth specialized study of a particular case, area, or social phenomenon and introduce theoretical perspectives and 3000-level courses analyze case materials applying theory critically in specific cases and consider the consequences of various theories on social policy and strategies for social change.

A 1000-level sociology course is required as a prerequisite for any 2000-level sociology course and any 2000-level sociology course is a prerequisite for any 3000-level sociology course. Any student who has grounds to request a waiver of this requirement may do so by contacting the sociology area coordinator for a decision. This request must be made prior to enrolling in the upper-level sociology course.

Caitlyn De Serres' dream job is to one day become a family counselor, leading her to pursue a double major in psychology and sociology.  "I don't think people realize how much counseling can help.
