Overlapping Courses Between Sociology Modules

Students who take two separate majors or a major and a specialization offered by the Department of Sociology (e.g., a Major in Sociology and a Major in Criminology) may overlap 1.0 course: Sociology 2205A/B Statistics for Sociology and Sociology 2206A/B Research Methods in Sociology (or the former Sociology 231) to fulfill the statistics and methodology requirements for both majors.

Sociology 2240E Survey or Sociological Theory or Sociology 2270A/B Foundations of Social Theory and Sociology 2271A/B Survey of Contemporary Theory, however, will be counted as fulfilling the requirements of one of these two modules; for the other major or specialization, students must take an additional Sociology course at the 2200-level.

The Department does not permit any course overlap between a Minor module offered by the Department of Sociology and any other module offered by the Department (i.e., Honors Specialization in Sociology and Minor in Criminology).

Statistics Substitution

The Department will allow students to substitute certain statistics courses (see list below) taken from other departments for Sociology 2205A/B and 2206A/B. Students are required to complete an equivalent number of Sociology courses at the 2200-level to replace Sociology 2205A/B and 2206A/B, i.e., if Sociology 2205A/B is replaced, then an additional 0.5 Sociology course at the 2200-level is required; if both Sociology 2205A/B and 2206A/B are replaced, than an additional 1.0 Sociology course at the 2200-level is required.

Common equivalent courses for Sociology 2205A/B include: Management and Organizational Studies 2242A/B, Psychology 2810, 2820E, Statistical Sciences 2035, 2037A/B, Biology 2244A/B, Health Sciences 2800 (or the former 201), Social Work 2205; Social Work 2205 also fulfills the requirement for Sociology 2206A/B.

Note: Three-Year Bachelor degrees allow a maximum of 9.0 courses in one subject area. Some modular combinations when taken exclusively through the Department of Sociology, may exceed this maximum, e.g., Major in Sociology + Minor in Criminology. Please consult the Department for further information.

Enrolment in this module is limited. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee that students wishing to transfer into this module will be offered enrollment.
