* Students receive Major Program AND GE Block D credit for this course.

** Students may not take more than one course in the same C-Block for GE credit.

*** Students may use free electives toward minor or certificate programs, or to better prepare in their major area.

For stronger sociology background, recommended courses are SOC 263 (d), SOC 330, SOC 341(d).

 

NOTE: Quarters with SOC 412 and 414 are lower unit-load quarters as these are the most challenging of our courses.

NOTE: This plan is based on readiness to take A1 and A4 courses 1st quarter. If remedial courses are needed, this plan must be adjusted accordingly.
