Does a student have to take the core course before taking any electives?
No. However, we encourage students to take the core course as soon as possible.
Are there general education courses that might be useful for an SJST student to take?
We strongly recommend SOCI 110 as a foundational course, particularly because it's the prerequisite for advanced courses in Sociology that may be of interest to a student in the SJS program.
Do SJST electives double count for other majors or minors?
Four credits of SJST electives can double count for other majors and minors. At least ten elective credits must be unique to the SJST minor. (However, general education requirements can double-count as SJST electives.)
What can a student do with an SJST minor?
Students interested in working in government, in social work, as community activists or organizers, in non-profit work locally or NGO’s internationally—among other careers—would find an SJST minor valuable. An SJST minor will also help prepare students for graduate work of all kinds.
