If a student wishes to count additional independent study credits toward the Sociology major, he/she must obtain approval from the Chair of the Sociology Department. For students declaring Sociology as a major, the recommended sequence of courses is found below.

Senior Year (either Fall or Spring):


A Senior Capstone Seminar each academic year, the department will offer four senior capstone seminars (two in the fall semester, two in the spring semester). The topics and professors for these courses will vary year to year. The department chair will inform rising seniors, prior to their registration for their senior fall semester, of their capstone choices. Rising seniors will then express their preferences to the department chair. Prerequisites for these capstone courses are SOCL 250 , SOCL 351 , SOCL 352 , and SOCL 353  (or an approved equivalent statistics course). Exceptions to these prerequisites may be made on a caseby-case basis by the department chair. A student completing Sociology Honors is not required to take a senior capstone seminar.
