The Sociology Honors Program challenges students to pursue a more in-depth analysis
of the discipline, and encourages students to achieve academic excellence. Eligible
students must have completed at least 55 hours of course work, and must have attained
at least a 3.0 overall GPA and a 3.25 GPA in the major. The program requires 18 hours
of honors work, including 12 hours of upper-division Sociology courses that count
for honors credit.
Honors credits may be earned by taking regular honors courses, honors special topics
courses, and writing an honors thesis. In some cases, subject to approval, students
may negotiate an honors contract with faculty members.
Several honors courses are offered each year by the Department of Sociology. For information
