Sociology Advisors

If you have already consulted with one of the sociology advisors below, or have/had them as a professor and are more comfortable contacting them than someone you don’t know, you should email them about general sociology advice.

Otherwise, you should contact the professor assigned to you by the first letter or two of your last name. Please provide your EMPLID when you email. These student hours (formerly known as office hours) are for Sociology advisement about the major, discussions of course content (if you are a student in one of their courses) or other matters, such as career or graduate-school possibilities. Only professors with *** can help you with overtallies into closed courses.

We are invested in the success of our new and continuing students who are majoring or minoring in Sociology. Below you will find contact information for Sociology advising. For more general advising, including help with LEH course selection, General Education requirements and reaching the required 120 credits for graduation, please contact an Academic Advisor. Note that Sociology advisors are not able to answer questions about financial aid, nor are they able to remove holds on enrollment, which typically are placed by the Bursar, the Registrar or Financial Aid. Please visit the virtual office hours page to contact the appropriate office.
