Overlapping Courses Between Sociology Modules
are required courses for all majors and specializations offered by the Department of Sociology. When students combine two majors (e.g., Major in Sociology and Major in Criminology) or a specialization and a major (Honors Specialization in Sociology and Major in Criminology), however, these courses only need to be taken once. Sociology 2205A/B
will be counted toward both modules. Sociology 2240E
will count toward one module and an additional 1.0 course at the 2200-level in Sociology must be taken for the other module.
This means that students taking two majors in Sociology have 11.0 required courses while those combining a specialization and a major have 14.0.
Please note that this is the only overlap allowed between Sociology modules. The Department does not permit any course overlap between a Minor and another module offered in Sociology.
Students who have taken any course from the following list, will need to replace Sociology 2205A/B
Statistics for Sociology with an additional 0.5 Sociology course at the 2200 level.
