If you wish to declare Sociology as your major, you must schedule an appointment with John McNeill through the SBS Student Advising System to discuss the requirements for the major or minor and general education requirements.

Determining Your Academic Catalog

Your degree requirements are based on the rules stated in the General Catalog that apply to you. Your applicable catalog is the one in force the first fall or spring semester that you enroll at The University of Arizona or at one of the community colleges in the State of Arizona. If you transferred here from ASU or NAU, the catalog to which you must adhere is the one in force when you enrolled at UA, not when you entered ASU or NAU. If you start during the summer, your catalog is the one in effect the fall after you enroll. You may elect to work under any subsequent University of Arizona catalog, provided you maintain continuous enrollment. Continuous enrollment is broken when you complete no courses for three consecutive regular semesters — e.g., fall, spring, fall — and the intervening summer terms. When this happens, your catalog is the one in force when you reenroll. Exceptions to this policy are the prerogative of the College. Students should contact their academic advisor for further information.
