In addition, students must take four additional credits for a minor in sociology, with no more than two of these being at the 100-level. The 300-level courses have a prerequisite of SOC 201 Navigating Social Worlds or any 100-level Sociology course. The 400-level methods courses have prerequisites of SOC 201 Navigating Social Worlds and SOC 303 Social Theory.
