Health and Society: Some Possible Pathways
All HSOC Majors and Minors Take:
HSCI 021 and (SOC 100 or STAT 111 or STAT 141)
PATHWAYS WITHIN THE MAJOR
Then students forge paths to fulfill their other major and minor requirements and gain the prerequisites for intermediate and/or upper-level courses. Pathways within the Major Document (DOCX)
These are just a few of the possible pathways a student could take. In addition, there are other paths. Students can take more than one pathway to gain more than one specialization. usually students take two pathways to a 200-level course in each.
Keep in mind that not all pathways go through to the 200-level, and students need the prereqs to take at least two 200-level courses. Also, some pathways require three courses before you can take a 200-level course; others require just two prereqs.
