Program Requirements

Note: University regulations apply to all students at Laurier. If there is any discrepancy between the program or progression requirements outlined on this page and those in the university's academic calendars, the academic calendars are the official sources of information. The information below is from the latest calendar, and you may be following progression requirements from an earlier calendar. Students are responsible for checking the appropriate calendar. Contact your program coordinator should you notice any discrepancies.

Switching into Sociology

To enter the honours Sociology program you must first complete SY101 with at least a C average (or 5.0 GPA). You must also have a minimum 5.0 GPA across all your courses. You can declare the major through LORIS using the "Program Selection Form" from Enrolment Services.

If you do not have the GPA to declare the major, you can still take Sociology courses that are not restricted to majors and continue to take your other electives toward the completion of your degree. You can declare the major later, when you have earned the GPA required for the honours program.

Sociology Advising

Schedule an appointment with the undergraduate academic advisor, Dana Sawchuk, by emailing socadvising@wlu.ca.

To assist with expediting the meeting, bring a completed progression requirements worksheet for your program to the meeting.
