Sociology Honors Program

The honors program is open by departmental permission to declared Sociology majors with a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA and a 3.5 GPA in Sociology courses.

Students complete CHSS 489 (a multidisciplinary colloquium emphasizing problem-solving, discussion, reading, and writing on a topic or theme); SOC 483; and HNRC 499, which fulfills the Liberal Studies Synthesis requirement. Students must earn at least a C in each course completed for the track. To determine how honors track courses will be integrated into existing requirements for the Sociology major, students should consult their advisors.

Students may be invited to apply or may nominate themselves. In either case, to be considered for the Sociology honors track, students must have earned 15 credits in Sociology, including SOC 320. Sociology majors who have met the eligibility criteria must submit an application to the chairperson of the Department of Sociology after they have earned at least 56 credits.
