Sociology Minor

The Sociology Minor is ideal for students who wish to add a sociological perspective to their studies while pursuing a major or specialist in another discipline. We admit a limited number of students into the Minor program each year.

Students cannot combine a Sociology Minor program with another Sociology program (Specialist or Major) for their degree.

Entry Requirements

Students who have achieved a minimum combined average of 65% in SOC100H1+SOC150H1, and who have completed 3.0 credits (in any discipline) (total of 4.0 credits) may apply for admission to the Sociology Minor in second year.  Entry into the Minor is competitive and achieving the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee admission into the program. Credit for higher-level SOC courses will not waive these requirements

Transfer credits of SOC1**H without exclusion cannot be used to meet program admission or requirements.

Completion Requirements

Completing a Sociology minor requires 4 full credits, as per the following: 

  1. SOC100H1+SOC150H1
  2. An additional 3.0 credits in Sociology, which includes at least 1.0 SOC credit at the 300 level, i.e., 2.0 SOC credits at the 200 OR 300 level and 1.0 SOC credit at the 300 level.
