The Sociology minor consists of SOC 101 and five electives, for a total of 18 credits. At least three of the five electives must be at the 300- or 400- level. The grades for all 18 credits must average a “C”. SOC 219 (formerly SOC 310) does not count as an elective towards a minor. A minimum of 9 Sociology credits (other than SOC 101) must be taken at the University of Maine. No courses for the minor can be taken pass / fail.
