Advisement and Registration
Students majoring in sociology should schedule at least two meetings each semester with their advisor. Also, all students majoring in sociology should plan their schedules in all cases with the assistance of their faculty advisor. Other faculty members and the Chairperson are also available to assist students.
Students should report to the Department Office during the first week of each semester to complete an Inventory Form. Also, a new form must be completed whenever a student’s address or telephone number changes during the course of the semester.
In addition to meeting the requirements in General Education and in the major, students must also complete six (6) credits in the Liberal Arts Core required of all majors in the College of Liberal Arts. Options for satisfying this requirement are outlined in the catalog under the section on the College of Liberal Arts. Also, in order to qualify for graduation, students must have taken two-thirds of their junior-and senior-level requirements in the major at Morgan (unless granted prior written permission by the Dean to take courses elsewhere); and must have earned a cumulative average of 2.0 or better and a major average of 2.0 or better, with no outstanding grades below “C” in the major (which includes all courses required for the major and required supporting courses)
