Students in Sociology may transfer up to 12 credits toward the Sociology major from another institution. Students may take L.CRJ-323 to meet the L.SOC-332 requirement, or take L.PSY-211 and L.PSY-212 to meet the L.SOC-332 and L.SOC-333 requirement, but only if approved by the program director and only due to extenuating circumstance.
