1st Year Students

This page is designed to help first-year Acadia students majoring in Sociology choose their courses. We recommend that students in their first year complete what is known as the Arts CORE, which is a requirement for all Bachelor of Arts students. 

As a Sociology major, you will need to take:

6 HRS   Sociology. You should take any 2 of the following 3-hour (half-year) courses: 1013, 1033, 1113 or WGST 1413.*

6 HRS   English (ENGL 1413/1423, 1483/1493, or 1213/1223) **

6 HRS   Language other than English (FRAN, SPAN, GERM, LATI, GREE). NOTE: you must take 6 hours of the same language.

6 HRS   Humanities [ART (NOT ART 2013,2023,2113,2123,3013, 3023), CLAS, CREL, HIST, PHIL OR WGST]

6 HRS   Pure & Applied Science (BIOL, CHEM, COMP, APSC, ENVS, GEOK, MATH, NUTR, PHYS, or PSYC)

NOTE: You need to complete 6 hours of Sociology intro courses in order to register for sociology electives during your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th years.

*  These courses are very popular, please ensure that you register as soon as you can and if there are no seats place yourself on the waitlist.

** If there is any chance that you will want to take upper-level  ENGL courses, you should register for either ENGL  1413 & ENGL 1423 or ENGL 1483 & ENGL 1493 as these are the prerequisites for further study in ENGL at Acadia University.

We are available to help with registration. Please contact Sociology Advising
