I am enrolled in two Sociology department modules, both of which require SOC 2205 and SOC 2206. How do we deal with this overlap?

Students enrolled in two Sociology department modules will take SOC 2205 and SOC 2206 once, and add additional 1.0 credits of Sociology courses at the 2200 level to fulfill this requirement for both modules.

A course I need for my module isn't offered this year. What should I do?

While every effort is made to offer required courses, this is not always possible due to the availability of our professors. Contact the Sociology Undergraduate Program Assistant who can discuss possible substitutions with you.

Can I take a course at one of the affiliated colleges?

Students enrolled in a Sociology and/or Criminology module must take all senior level (2000-level or above) courses for this module on main campus. Sociology courses taken at an Affiliate campus will be used as electives only, not toward the fulfillment of module requirements. Exceptional circumstances must be reviewed by the Chair of Sociology/Sociology Undergraduate Program Assistant.
