Overlapping Courses Between Sociology Modules
are required courses for most of the majors and specializations offered by the Department of Sociology at Brescia. When students combine two majors (e.g., Major in Sociology and Major in the Sociology of Law, Crime and Deviance) or a specialization and a major (e.g., Honors Specialization in Sociology and Major in the Sociology of Law, Crime and Deviance), however, these courses only need to be taken once. Sociology 2205A/B
will be counted toward both modules. Sociology 2240E
will count toward one module and an additional 1.0 course at the 2200-level in Sociology must be taken for the other module. When a major module in sociology is being combined with the Community Development module offered by the Brescia Sociology Department (which does not require that Sociology 2205A/B
be taken), any 1.0 sociology course numbered 2200 or above may be doubled counted.
This means that students taking two majors in Sociology have 11.0 required courses while those combining a specialization and a major have 14.0.
Please note that this is the only overlap between Sociology modules. The Department does not permit any course overlap between a Minor and another module offered in Sociology.
Three-Year Bachelor degrees allow a maximum of 9.0 courses in one subject area. Some modular combinations when taken exclusively through the Department of Sociology, may exceed this maximum, e.g., Major in Sociology + Minor in Criminal Justice. Please consult the Department for further information.
The Department will allow students to substitute certain statistics courses (see list below) taken from other departments for Sociology 2205A/B
. To fulfill requirements for a major or specialization, however, students will still need to take Sociology 2206A/B
and an additional half-year course in Sociology at the 2200 level to make up for the lack of Sociology 2205A/B
