Sociology Minor

  • Minor
  • College of Arts & Letters
  • Department of Sociology & Criminal Justice

Complement your major with a study of human social behavior, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior.

You will take three required courses in:

  • Social Inequality
  • Sociological Theory
  • Social Research Methods

You will also choose one additional upper-level sociology course to complete the minor.

    SOC 201S is a prerequisite for the minor. If your bachelor's program does not already include this course, it will add three credit hours to the total.

  • Access course materials online from any location. Many classes don't have a scheduled meeting time, so you can fit class into your personal schedule. The instructor may schedule assignments and exams at specific times. All courses follow ODU's regular academic calendar.
