Departmental Advising & Support

Advising for Sociology Students

Undergraduates are strongly encouraged to meet regularly with an academic advisor to plan their program of study. Keeping track of one’s course of study and progress toward graduation is the responsibility of the individual student. Continued contact with an advisor can help students stay on track for graduation.

Our undergraduate coordinators are available to assist students with the following:

  • Understand the sociology major and minor requirements
  • Advise on internships, study abroad, grad school, and other career goals in sociology
  • Choose courses to meet necessary prerequisites and/or major/minor requirements
  • Look ahead at upcoming course offerings to prep for advising appointments
  • Complete registrar forms such as late graduation petitions, tuition refunds, and grade changes
  • Coordinate prerequisite and/or enrollment overrides (with faculty approval)

Sociology majors can find drop-in help related to degree progress and course planning from the Undergraduate Program Team in the ASU2-Offices
