You don't need a business major to succeed in business. In fact, employers prefer more general skills that are the basis of the discipline and coursework in sociology. What's more, some of the nation's top MBA programs admit more students with social science backgrounds than business backgrounds, because of the analytical, comprehension and critical thinking skills they provide.


The minor consists of three to four required courses and additional hours to be chosen from a set of electives for a total of at least 18 hours. A grade point average of 2.50 must be maintained for all courses in the minor.

This minor should be declared before or during your junior year. You may pursue only one pre-professional sociology minor. All courses for the minor (excluding field work) must be taken for a grade.

Please consult your Bulletin year for specific course requirements.
