Other Information

For students with majors in the College of Arts and Sciences, no more than 1 course may overlap with a student’s major(s) or other minor(s). If the major is outside the College of Arts and Sciences, check with the home college for information on overlap, and whether a course may be counted toward both major and minor requirements.

Students pursuing the Health Sciences major, the Global Health Concentration in the Anthropology major, and/or the Health and Healing track in the Environmental Studies major should be especially mindful of the course overlap restrictions in the college of their major.

If pursuing an Anthropology major, ANTH courses used for the HSOC minor are included in the 45-credit major rule. If pursuing an Environmental Studies major, ENVS courses used for the HSOC minor are included in the 45-credit major rule.

In taking intermediate and/or upper level courses, HSOC minors need to be mindful of prerequisites and plan ahead accordingly.

HSOC minors are encouraged to discuss their minor with both the HSOC minor advisor and their major advisor in order to tailor a plan of study that fits their strengths and interests.
