Overview

Students majoring in sociology must choose a concentration in the first semester of enrollment at Le Moyne subsequent to the first year. One selects a concentration or switches to a different concentration with the advice and consent of the departmental advisor. A form which indicates such changes is available from the chair of the department and must be filed with the registrar. Upper-level SOC electives are selected with the advice and consent of one’s departmental advisor on the basis of their relevance to one’s academic interests and career objectives. Upper-level SOC electives are offered subject to demand. Consult the department chair about course offerings.

An internship in sociology is developed by a student in consultation with department faculty according to the supervisor’s internship guidelines. Normally, no more than three credit hours of internship may be counted toward a major in sociology.
