Bachelor of Arts Degree

Considerable flexibility is afforded to students in the social sciences who wish to concentrate their studies in two social sciences fields without necessarily completing a full major in either, or who wish to concentrate their studies around a theme (a selfdesigned concentration). These students would then pursue a degree in social sciences, which requires completion of a social science methodology course selected from SOC 0300 , STAT 1020 , or STAT 1040  and a minimum of 54 credits in the Division of Social Sciences under one of two options:

Option B

A minimum of 24 credits in social sciences courses clustered around a designated theme. The theme and appropriate courses are chosen by mutual consent of the student and advisor. The remaining 30 credits must be distributed among the social sciences fields (except business or internships), with at least one course in each. Students should note that interdisciplinary self-designed majors may be constructed across divisions as well.
