Requirements & Suggested Order of Classes

* You need 124 hours to graduate
* 60 hours must be from a 4-year institution
* You must have a 2.0 GPA in Sociology to graduate
* You must get at least a C in all required classes:
(these are:  111, 301, 302, 303, 338, 431, 433).
* You must get at least a C on your internship paper to graduate.
* You need the following sociology classes to graduate:
111, 5 sociology electives, 301, 302, 303, 338, 431, 433.
* We require that students take the class simultaneous with their internship.  This way we can ensure that students have the best support available when writing the final paper and dealing with internship problems.   From our experience, students who do not take the class and do their internship simultaneously have a difficult time graduating and are less likely to gain valuable experience from their internship.

Students who must take the class and do the internship separately can do so under appeal.   These students must write a proposal explaining a) why the two experiences cannot be done together and b) how all class assignments will be completed.   The appeal will be considered by the student's advisor.
