The Department of Sociology offers types of courses: sociology courses with the prefix SOC*;and departmental courses with the prefix SOAN*. The departmental category of courses recognizes the fact that the disciplines of sociology have developed in tandem and it is possible to identify large areas of overlap and convergence in the work of practitioners both historically and in the present. Departmental courses include most of the core theory and methods courses as well as many elective courses. They contribute to the subject matter of sociology for purposes of the undergraduate programs of study in this discipline.
