|9 additional credits drawn from the list of HSOC electives posted each semester, at least 3 credits of which must be taken at the 100-level or above. May include any of the courses listed above that have not already been counted toward your degree (except additional 100-level methods courses) and/or any courses listed as HSOC elective courses on the HSOC advising webpage each semester. Please note that the degree audit does not list all possible electives, and the degree audit software is not able to recognize any elective that is not an option as a core course. Please contact the HSOC Director to request that those electives be counted toward your major.||9|
For interdisciplinary exposure, no more than 21 credits of courses can come from a single course prefix.
To meet the CAS 84-hour rule for cross-college majors, HSOC majors must take at least 84 of their 120 credits in CAS-designated courses. To help meet this requirement, pay attention to which HSOC courses count toward the CAS hour rule as listed on the HSOC course listing for each semester on the HSOC advising webpage. Also, keep track of which of non-HSOC courses are counting as CAS-designated courses. Use degree audit tools to track overall progress toward at least 84 CAS-designated course credits.
No more than 1 course may overlap between a student’s major and minor, or between a student’s 2 majors in a double major.
Please be aware that some courses have extra prerequisites. It is the student’s responsibility to check for prerequisites and to take them ahead of time.
Navigating a cross-college major, multiple majors, or dual degrees can be complex, so all Health and Society majors should meet with an academic advisor to ensure their course plans are suitable.
Students who are pre-health track should take (BIOL 001 and BIOL 002) or (BCOR 011 and BCOR 012) or (BCOR 021 and BCOR 103) as their Natural Science distribution.
