The above degree plan meets all core curriculum and Bachelor of Arts degree requirements. The B.A. degree with a major in Sociology requires a minimum of 120 semester credit hours, a minimum of 42 advanced (junior and senior level) semester credit hours, and a minimum of 30 semester credit hours in residence (24 of which must be at the advanced level.) 24 of the last 30 hours required to complete this degree must be taken in residence.

Concentration areas only apply to certain catalog terms. Students with a major in sociology, either Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, have the option to select one or more concentrations from the list below. The concentration areas are designed to provide students with the opportunity to focus their studies and develop specific skill sets that are highly marketable in the workplace and in gaining admission to graduate programs. However, they do not constitute separate academic majors or minors, and they do not replace the requirement that students have a major and a minor.

The student who does wish to complete a concentration should take 12 semester credit hours in the selected area, as listed below. The sociology courses do count toward the major requirements as well as satisfying the concentration requirement. The student who does not wish to select one of the concentrations should merely complete the major requirements.
