Students seeking to declare a major or minor in sociology should contact Grace Pettis (in Garland Hall 201). Students will be asked to complete a short form that provides the opportunity to indicate any faculty advisor preference(s), they may have. Every effort will be made to pair a given student with his/her preference.
A few days following completion of the form, the student will be provided with the name, e-mail, phone number, and office location of his/her advisor. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the advisor in order to set up an orientation meeting. This meeting allows the student to gain information on a variety of topics ranging from the major/minor requirements, to the honors program in sociology, the sociology Honors Society, internships in sociology, and career opportunities.
For a student to be formally admitted into the major/minor program, the student must complete a Declaration of Major or Declaration of Minor form, get the advisor’s signature, and submit the form to the Registrar’s office of the College at which the student is enrolled.
