Note: This sequence represents a typical path through the major. The sequence for any individual student may vary.
First Year: Either Soc 1010 or 1020 (fall). Also take two courses from the core or elective areas.
Second Year: At least two courses from the core areas. Very strong students may take Soc 3001 in the spring. We advise against taking Soc 2100 until the junior year.
Third Year: Soc 2100 in the fall or spring, and Soc 3001 in the fall or spring. Take the remaining courses from the core areas and at least one elective. Note: some students take Soc 3002 (fall) and Soc 3003 (spring) in their junior year. Soc 2100 may be taken with Soc 3002 in the fall, but Soc 2100 must be completed before taking Soc 3003.
Fourth Year: Take the remaining electives and core courses plus Soc 3002 (fall) and Soc 3003 (spring). Honors students have a different trajectory and should see their advisors.
Note: AP Statistics courses usually do not count for Soc 2100
