Sociology New Major Advising
Sociology does not have walk-in advising. When new orientation sessions become available, you must schedule an orientation to declare the major. Follow the link below, "How To Declare A Major In Sociology". CLAS (College of Liberal Arts and Sciences), 2nd FL in Fretwell, will do advising for:
- GEN ED (General Education) questions
- Transient Study questions
- Academic Policy
Please Note: CLAS advising will not advise regarding any topic, question, concern directly relating to the Sociology major. Please check with the CLAS Advising Center for their scheduled hours.
All existing Sociology Majors will schedule advising appointments through Starfish. If your advisor does not appear in your Starfish list, you will find your advisor listed on our People page where you will have the ability to send a direct email.
In addition to our face-to-face major advising, we have provided resources and videos on our website. The videos will enable you the opportunity to have the course requirements explained by an experienced advisor. General questions, all non-academic questions, can be answered by the department staff. However, the staff is not authorized to provide academic advice.
