Combined Honors in Sociology
Students may pursue a Combined Honors program in Sociology and another discipline.
Students planning to apply for admission should consult BA Honors for admission requirements for both disciplines.
A Combined Honors program in Sociology and another discipline requires a minimum of ★42 in Sociology with ★9 at the 300- or 400-level and ★6 at the 400-level and a minimum of ★36 in the other field.
Where an Honors Essay is required in both disciplines and with the permission of the Honors Advisors in both areas, students may write a combined honors essay (INT D 520) that is supervised jointly by faculty from both departments and whose subject integrates both disciplines. In this case, an additional ★3 in a 400-level SOC course will be required.
Promotion and Graduation Requirements
In a combined Honors program, students must meet the promotion and graduation standards of each discipline. The requirements for Sociology are outlined above in BA Honors Major Requirements.
