Overlapping Courses Between Sociology Modules


Sociology 2205A/B, Sociology 2206A/B and Sociology 2240E or Sociology 2270A/B and Sociology 2271A/B are required courses for all majors and specializations offered by Sociology.  When students combine two majors (e.g., Major in Sociology and Major in Criminology or Major in Criminal Justice) or a specialization and a major (Honors Specialization in Sociology and Major in Criminology or Major in Criminal Justice), however, these courses only need to be taken once.  Sociology 2205A/B and Sociology 2206A/B will be counted toward both modules.  Sociology 2240E or Sociology 2270A/B and Sociology 2271A/B 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 and Sociology 2206A/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.

Note:  this is the only overlap allowed between Sociology modules.  The Department does not permit any course overlap between a Minor and another module offered in Sociology.

Note: 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 Criminology. Please consult the Department for further information.
