While students develop a comprehensive understanding about the world around them and their place in it through critical thinking and scientific investigation, they equip themselves with necessary interpersonal and communication skills to work in diverse and challenging social conditions.

Students minoring in Sociology are required to complete 15 semester hours with a passing grade of C or above (see the Sociology minor requirements balance sheet and course descriptions for more details).

The FVSU Minor in Sociology is administered through the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences. For major and minor requirements, please visit the department’s Degree Maps page.
