Sociology is the study of social relationships and social structures. It focuses on relations among people, groups, organizations, classes, cultures, and society. Sociology explores and analyses issues vital to our personal lives, our communities, our society, and the world. The curriculum in sociology is designed to provide students with an understanding of the social character of human life and of the impact of varying forms of social organization on human affairs. Students are introduced to the methods by which such knowledge is obtained and to the applications of sociological knowledge. Students considering sociology as a concentration are encouraged to speak with a sociology academic advisor.

Prerequisites to Concentration. Students planning to concentrate in sociology should elect 3 or 4 credit hours of introductory course work. First- and second-year students choose from Sociology 100 (Principles of Sociology), 101 (Person and Society), 102 (Contemporary Social Issues), 195 (Principles of Sociology-Honors), 202 (Contemporary Social Issues I), 203 (Contemporary Social Issues II), 400 (Sociological Principles and Problems), or 401 (Contemporary Social Issues III). If no previous introductory sociology, juniors may choose, and seniors must choose Sociology 400 (Sociological Principles and Problems) or 401 (Contemporary Social Issues III). Consult the listing of courses in this Bulletin and/or the Time Schedule for specific course information.

Concentration Program. In addition to one of the introductory courses, concentrators are required to take at least 30 credit hours of sociology courses, including:

1. Statistics: Sociology 210 (or its equivalent) completed with a grade of "C-" or better.

2. Research Methods: Sociology 310 or 512.

3. Areas of Sociology: At least one course in the three major areas of the discipline: (a) social psychology, (b) population, urban studies and human ecology, and (c) social organization. The sociology courses which are approved in each of these areas are:

a. Social Psychology: 101, 452, 463, 464, 465, 470, 472, 481, 482, 486, 589, 590, 591, 595, 596, and 597.

b. Population, Urban Studies, and Human Ecology: 231, 304, 330, 331, 335, 336, 430, 435, 437, 530, and 535.

c. Social Organization: includes most other sociology courses, except those which are methodological in character.

Concentration advisors have an updated list of the approved courses, and selection should be made with approval of an advisor.

The Department expects that at least one-half of credits applied to a sociology concentration program will be earned in residence.

It should be noted that Sociology 389 is offered mandatory credit/no credit and therefore cannot be included as part of a concentration plan.

Students are especially encouraged to consult with a concentration advisor if they are interested in specializing within distinct sub-fields of sociology. These sub-fields are of particular interest to those planning to pursue graduate study or a closely related career. To receive certification in a sub-field a student is expected to take at least four courses and at least 12 credits (included in the total hours of concentration) within that sub-field. These sub-fields include: Law, Criminology, and Deviance; Economy, Business, and Society; Health, Aging and Population; Social Institutions and Services; Social Inequality; and Social Change.

Law, Criminology, and Deviance is particularly relevant to students considering careers or graduate study within law, criminal justice, and social work. Topics studied include law and society, the criminal justice system, deviance and juvenile delinquency.

Economy, Business, and Society is especially useful for students planning graduate study or work within private industry and large public institutions. In this subconcentration students analyze corporations, occupations, and the sociology of work.

Health, Aging, and Population considers issues of interest to students contemplating graduate work or careers in medicine and fields ranging from hospital administration to gerontology to social work. The study of medical sociology, population trends and health-related issues are emphasized.

The study of Social Institutions and Services is useful for those interested in social welfare, social work, the family, and urban institutions, including education.

The study of Social Inequality emphasizes social problems related to inequality based on race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, ability, and class. It is useful for students considering a wide variety of career options or plans for graduate study.

Social Change considers how social problems occur and are resolved, examining social movements in the United States and the rest of the world. Since social change affects all our lives and all the institutions with which we come into contact, such preparation is relevant to many future fields of study, employment, and lifework.

Faculty and student advisors are available to discuss the choice of sociology as a concentration, help you select your sub-field of sociology, assist you in selecting required courses, and advise you on graduate study, career preparation, and other opportunities in the field.

Sociology Honors Program. The Honors Program allows the Sociology Department to combine some of the best features of a liberal arts college with those of a major research university. Honors classes are typically small and allow for interaction with faculty committed to undergraduate education. In addition, by writing a thesis, Honors students have the opportunity to do independent research under the supervision of scholars widely respected in their fields. The thesis both demonstrates the expertise students have developed in their undergraduate years and illustrates their capacity to contribute to a field of inquiry — especially important should they pursue advanced degrees. Thus, it stands as an emblem both of undergraduate achievement and of scholarly promise.

Just as important, Honors students find the opportunity to work in tandem with inventive and highly-motivated peers, a reward in itself. The sequence of thesis seminars provides a context in which students exchange information, provide support for one another's work, and offer feedback as projects develop. The seminars are also the vehicle by which students are informed about summer internships, research assistantships, and financial assistance for research.

Beyond these educational rewards, the pragmatic benefits of the Honors Program should not be ignored: independent research naturally looks good to graduate and professional schools, as does a recommendation from a professor who knows you well. A Michigan degree awarded "with Honors" (or perhaps "with highest Honors") catches the eye of prospective employers. And, of course, the completion of an independent project encourages the self-confidence that stands you in good stead whether you enter business, the professions, academe, or politics.

Students who enter the University in Honors or join it in their first two years may take Honors Principles of Sociology (SOC 195), but the Program largely consists of a three-term sequence of seminars and guided research that culminates in the thesis. Students typically declare an Honors concentration as second-term sophomores or first-term juniors. (Because depth in a particular area of sociology may aid students in formulating and conducting their thesis research, the subdisciplinary concentrations offered by the Department should be considered at this time).

The Program officially begins with Sociology 397 (3 credits) in the second term of the junior year and continues through the senior year with Sociology 398 and 399 (3 credits each). During 398 and 399, students work with the supervision of their faculty mentors, while continuing to meet as a class.

Prerequisites: Typically Sociology Honors concentrators have a 3.2 GPA within LS&A and in their sociology courses. In addition, they already will have demonstrated originality in their own course work, shown a serious interest in scholarly research, and given evidence of their ability to work independently on a thesis. Students should plan on completing Sociology 210 (Statistics) prior to enrolling in Sociology 397 and should take Sociology 310 concurrently with it. For most students this will mean that 210 should be taken as a first-term Junior. Both 210 and 310 should be completed before enrolling in 398 and 399.

To graduate with Honors, students must meet all general concentration requirements, complete Sociology 397, 398, and 399, and write an acceptable Honors thesis. Upon completion of this course work and dependent upon the evaluation of the thesis, the academic record and diploma will designate the degree awarded "with Honors," "with high Honors," or "with highest Honors."

Interested students should call the Sociology Undergraduate Program Office at 764-7239 to set up an appointment with the Department's Honors Coordinator.

Special Opportunities. Students are important in the Sociology Department. Undergraduates are encouraged to become actively involved in the design of their education and to take advantage of a wide range of opportunities and services offered by the Department. These include Project Community, the Sociology Undergraduate Club, the Computer Assistance Program, the Eita Krom Prize, and Alpha Kappa Delta, and the International Sociology Honorary Society.

Project Community. A number of concentrators in sociology participate in Project Community, a University coordinated experiential learning and community service program. Students earn academic credit by reflecting sociologically on their volunteer experience with three major kinds of institutions: Education, Criminal Justice, and Health Care. Roles open for student volunteers include those of tutors, referral service workers, health care assistants, patient educators, prisoner and youth advocates, and recreational or artistic workshop leaders. Although it does not fulfill a concentration requirement, this course is an ideal experiential complement to the regular academic instruction provided by the Department. Students, assisted by trained graduate and undergraduate discussion leaders and field coordinators, gain useful skills and contacts while serving the needs of the community. Inquiries should be made in the offices of Project Community, Michigan Union, second floor (763-3548).

The Sociology Undergraduate Club. The association of undergraduate sociology students provides undergraduates with resources, information, and representation within the Department. In the past, meetings have served as a forum for student concerns, for discussion of sociological issues, for meeting and working with faculty members, and for engaging in social activities. The Club also elects representatives to sit on Departmental committees. Students are encouraged to join because participation enhances the undergraduate experience in sociology.

Computer Assistance Program. Assistance is provided by the Department to help students with word processing, programming, and quantitative analyses of social phenomena.

The Eita Krom Prize. The Department annually awards the Eita Krom Prize, which provides cash awards to the two or three undergraduate LS&A students who submit the best paper written on a sociological topic. Each April, papers are nominated by faculty members. Decisions are made during the month of May. For more information, contact the Sociology Undergraduate Programs Office.

Alpha Kappa Delta. Alpha Kappa Delta is the national honor society in sociology. The Sociology Department nominates students who are then inducted every spring at the Department's graduation ceremonies. For membership information contact the Coordinator of the Sociology Undergraduate Programs Office at 764-7239.

Interdepartmental Concentration Programs. The department collaborates with other academic units to offer several interdepartmental concentration programs.

Social Anthropology Concentration Program. This program combines study in the Departments of Anthropology and sociology. Mutual interest in problems of social organization and culture provide the interdisciplinary focus for the program. The interdisciplinary concentration is designed to acquaint the student with the factual, methodological, and theoretical contributions of sociologists and anthropologists.

Latino Studies Sociology Option. This undergraduate concentration is designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn about Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, and other peoples of Indian, Spanish, and African heritage who comprise the Latin American population residing in the United States.

Teaching Certificate. Concentrators interested in a teaching certificate should make arrangements with a School of Education advisor. Concentration work in sociology can be applied to teaching certificates in education, the social sciences and in general.
