Minor in Sociology

Academic advisors in Sociology and Career Counselors are advising all students to EARN MORE THAN JUST A BACCALAUREATE DEGREE while at Fresno State. To be more competitive for professional employment, better prepared for graduate study, and receive training in critical thinking, research, and communication skills, consider a minor degree in SOCIOLOGY!

DOUBLE-COUNTING courses towards both GE requirements and the sociology minor is allowed, and you can earn an extra degree without additional time or money—just advanced planning!

For example (for Sociology Minors):

Soc1/1S double count for GE Area D3!

Soc3 double counts for GE Area A3 (Critical Thinking)!

Soc130W/WS double count for the Upper Division Writing Requirement!

Soc131, 143, & 163 double count for Upper Division GE Area ID!

Soc111 & Soc142 double count for Upper Division GE Area M/I!

See a faculty advisor for any questions.
