Sociology and Anthropology major requirements

A major in Sociology and Anthropology requires 9.5 courses in the department (and MATH 106):

SOCI 101 Introduction to Sociology OR SOCI 102 Social Problems OR
ANTH 103 Introduction to Anthropology
SOAN 301 Theories of Culture and Society
SOAN 302 Methods of Social Research (Prerequisites: STAT 100 or STAT 201, minimum grade of C−)
SOAN 410 Research Preparation
SOAN 420 Senior Research
(SOAN 410 and 420 must be taken sequentially and in the same academic year)

Five additional courses, at least four of which must be above the 100 level. Of these five courses, a minimum of two must be taken in both Sociology (SOCI) and Anthropology (ANTH).

The departmental requirements allow for considerable flexibility to meet individual students’ needs. For example, for those students interested in pursuing a career in which field experience at the undergraduate level is recommended, an internship (SOAN 310) with an appropriate agency should be considered. Also,
SOAN 420 (Research Seminar) can be specifically tailored to serve an individual student’s academic and career interests. Additionally, an off-campus study program such as the ACM (Associated Colleges of the Midwest) Urban Studies Program is recommended for all majors.
