A maximum of ★54 at the senior level is possible, the additional ★12 being made up of courses at the 200-, 300- or 400-level.
Compulsory requirements for a minor are met by a study of subjects in an area or areas related to the student’s interest in Sociology. ★30 (at the junior and senior levels) are required; however, without permission of the Associate Chair (Undergraduate), no more than ★18 from any single department are allowed.
The remainder of an Honors student’s program is composed of optional coursework. Courses taken outside the Faculties of Arts and Science may be approved as part of the minor requirement in related areas, or they may be taken as options if their number, in the total program, does not exceed ★18.
Honors students considering graduate studies should take senior courses in population and additional coursework in theory and methods beyond that required of Honors students.
Due to the unique nature of the minor requirements in the Honors in Sociology program, a Combined Honors program in Sociology is not normally offered.
Graduation with Honors in Sociology requires a graduation average of at least 3.0 with an average of at least 3.3 in all Sociology courses, and no grade of less than B- in any Sociology course. Graduation with First Class Honors requires an average of at least 3.7 in all senior Sociology courses and 3.5 or better on all courses in the final year (last ★30 completed).
