At least twenty-seven semester hours of coursework in sociology, including Sociology 302, 317L, 317M, and 379M. At least fifteen semester hours must be in upper-division courses. Sociology majors must earn grades of at least C in Sociology 302, 317L, and 317M. To enroll in Sociology 317M for a second time, a student must have the consent of a sociology undergraduate adviser. Students may not enroll in Sociology 317M more than twice.

In place of Sociology 317L, students may complete one of the following alternative courses with a grade of at least C: Mathematics 316, Statistics and Data Sciences 303, 304, 305, 306. If the student completes one of these courses instead of Sociology 317L, that course is counted toward the twenty-seven hours required for the major and is included in the major grade point average.
