9 courses instead of 8 will be required
SOC 52, the statistics course, will be eliminated
SOC 51, the methods course, will include both qualitative and quantitative components
Both qualitative and quantitative seminars, with research projects, will be required.
Will I be subject to the new course requirements if I declared last year (06-07)?
No, if you declared prior to this year (07-08) you will be under the old requirements.
What if I declared last year (06-07) but don't want to take the research sequence
until next year (08-09)?
If you can't or don't want to take the sequence until next year special arrangements will made to ensure that you get the courses you need and of course you would only be required to take eight courses.
