Sophomores: Major-Declaration Deadline

The Sociology Department deadline for sophomores' submitting an initial DartWorks Plan as a major is April 1, 2017. 

Please find the most up-to-date course schedule for Summer 2017 through Spring 2019 here

Please use the worksheets located at the bottom of the webpage found by clicking here to assist you in completing your Major Planner within DartWorks. 

The registrar's office has a Guide here to help you with getting that Plan into DartWorks. Your online plan will need to be reviewed by the Department (and may need a little tweaking by you) so please allow time to get this completed. 

If you would like assistance in the initial step of completing your Major Plan worksheet, please come by Silsby 111 on any Tuesday during the hours of 1:30-3:30pm before April, and see Department Administrator Judy Danna.  Or send an email with alternate times if you prefer to set something up by appointment.

Seniors: Major-Update Deadline

The Sociology Department deadline for seniors' filing a final version of the Major Plan in DartWorks (reflecting the proper number of actual major courses taken all four years) is Friday, March 31, 2017.  For regular (that is, not modified) majors, this should show exactly eleven courses and no more.   If you took more than eleven courses in Sociology, please include eleven that meet the Major criteria and would yield you the highest major GPA. The registrar's office and the Department need a record from each senior of the sequence of Major courses completed.  If you have not already done so, please be sure to log into DartWorks and take care of this before the Department deadline above.
